David Cameron has called for "bold leadership" in a newspaper article laying out his criteria for the new president of the European Commission. This comes as Britain leads a campaign, with Sweden and the Netherlands, to block the candidacy of Luxembourg's ex-prime minister, Jean-Claude Juncker. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has publicly backed Mr Juncker.
