Two British ministers condemned on Saturday EU leaders who privately voiced concerns over the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as EU Commission President but voted for him at a summit in Brussels, with one calling them cowards over the decision. On Friday, EU heads of government outvoted British Prime Minister David Cameron with 26 leaders backing Juncker's candidacy against Cameron and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Oban who both opposed the move.
