Guilt by association

There are many valid reasons to criticise the EU and many to criticise Jean-Claude Juncker.

But the fact that, more than a decade before he was born, Juncker's father was conscripted into Hitler's army is not one of them.

Nor is what his father-in-law may or may not have done did during the German occupation of Luxembourg a decade before Juncker himself was born

I'm not impressed that some of the British Press and some UKIP supporters on msocial media appear to be trying to make something of this. It's not relevant and it's deeply offensive.

Play the ball, not the man.
