EU's Juncker names Britain's Julian King as security commissioner Confusing or clever given Brexit??

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will make the British nominee for the Commission, Julian King, Europe’s new anti-terrorism tsar, the Commission announced Tuesday.

The decision to name King the commissioner for the security union was made after Juncker “meditated” on what role to assign Britain’s incoming member of the EU executive body, Commission Spokesperson Mina Andreeva told reporters yesterday.

The commissioner for the security union will support the implementation of the European Agenda on Security, which the European Commission adopted in April 2015, according to a “mission letter” sent to King.

King’s new role reflects the Commission president’s priorities in the post-Brexit Commission, and demonstrates his signature sense of humor.

After the Brussels attacks in March 2016, Juncker called for a “security union” to respond to the threat of terrorism and said Europe needed to better coordinate its response.

“We feel we need capital markets union, energy union, economic and monetary union, but we also think that we need a security union,” Juncker said on March 23.
