David Cameron "did not plan this, want this, or expect this" said the BBC's political editor over the expected appointment of Jean-Claude Juncker as the next president of European Commission.

Nick Robinson said the British PM was trying to "snatch some form of moral victory" over the expected defeat, where he had been relying on leaders to back his bid to block the former Luxembourg leader.

He was speaking from Brussels at the EU Summit, and revealed how other European leaders have told the BBC that they "do not want Britain to leave", despite this division.
