Luxembourg Premier Jean-Claude Juncker: 'We Have Been Occupied Before' - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

The tone between Germany and Luxembourg has been anything but friendly in recent weeks. SPIEGEL spoke with Luxembourg's Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker about German humor, European tax havens and his own future in the EU.

SPIEGEL: For years, you were Europe's darling. But now, people in Brussels, Paris and Berlin see you as the leader of a tax haven. What happened?

Juncker: What happened is that some of my counterparts say one thing today and something else tomorrow, and do not stick to agreements. And some adopt a tone that we find unpleasant.
