Its not just Greens who are worried about Europe – the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker stated in a speech that leaders of other planets are worried about the direction Europe will take, in the wake of the Brexit vote.
Did EU chief confirm aliens EXIST? Juncker ‘speaks of BREXIT to leaders of other planets’
ALIEN conspiracy theorists were sent into overdrive after European Commission president Jean Claude Juncker appeared to say he had “heard from the leaders of other planets”.
Clips of the EU big wig speaking in a Brexit debate are going viral online, after he was heard to say aliens were worried about the looming Brexit by the UK from the union.
He said, translated from French: “You need to know that those who observe us from afar are worried.
“I have have seen, listened and heard many leaders of other planets and they are very worried because they wonder about the course the EU will follow.
“So we have to reassure both the Europeans and those who observe us from afar.”
Here is a youtube of the alleged “alien” speech:
I don’t speak French, but according to Google Translate, the phrase “leaders of other planets” in French is “dirigeants d’autres planètes”, which sounds awfully like the phrase Mr. Juncker uttered.
While it might be funny to consider the possibility the head of the über green European Union receives instruction from other planets, the more likely mundane explanation is that it was a slip of the antenna. Rumours have abounded for a while that Mr Juncker is fond of the odd tipple before public events – perhaps he simply over indulged a little more than usual, before making the “alien” speech.
