One for Juncker

Having studiously avoided analysing the uniquely irrelevant Luxembourg referendum result (although there is a good report in The Times today), the plight and ambitions of dear old Jean-Claude Juncker came flooding back this evening, as I watched an episode of the science-fiction series Stargate SG1 on television.

With the SG1 team in yet another dire predicament, leader Colonel Jack O’Neil turns to his 2 i/c, Major Samantha Carter, and the following dialogue ensues:

O’Neil: Time for Plan B!
Carter: We have a Plan B?
O’Neil: No. But it's time to put it into action.
One for Juncker, I believe.
