"The president of the European Commission has risked angering Britain after comments warning that the "Anglo-Saxon world" would seek to dismantle the European project if Greece was ever allowed to leave the single currency.
Speaking to an audience at at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium, Jean-Claude Juncker said a "Grexit" would expose the EU to "huge danger" leaving the euro prey to forces who "would do everything to try to decompose" what remained of the monetary union.
“Grexit is not an option," said Mr Juncker.
"If Greece would accept it, if the others would accept it, that the country would exit the zone of security and prosperity constituted by the eurozone, we would be exposed to huge danger, because the Anglo-Saxon world would do everything to try to decompose, at a regular rhythm, apartment by apartment, of the eurozone."
