New European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker stoked a bitter row between London and Brussels Wednesday, accusing Prime Minister David Cameron of having a "problem" with other EU leaders. [...]

Analysts said Juncker was deliberately trying to set a new tone.

"It is a totally different approach from Barroso," Janis Emmanouilidis of the European Policy Centre told AFP.

"Juncker really shows he's doing what he'd said he wants to -- make the Commission a stronger political actor. He is signalling to the heads of government he is ready to interfere, to be blunt, to criticize member states."
