Britain can do business with Jean-Claude Juncker, Prime Minister David Cameron declared on Monday after failing to prevent EU leaders giving the Luxembourger the bloc's most powerful job in a defeat that could push Britain closer to leaving the EU. [...]

Janis Emmanouilidis, director of studies at the European Policy Centre in Brussels, said Cameron's vote defeat suggested Britain's relationship with the EU was heading for an impasse.

"Despite all his determination, Cameron’s action weakens his position both at national and European levels," said Emmanouilidis.

"At the European level, the patience in many national capitals and in EU institutions with London seems to be running out ... The voices of those arguing that the EU could 'do without the UK' are increasing and getting louder in public and behind closed doors."
