Should the EU parliament vote on replacing the current European Commission given that it managed to bungle the whole UK situation? Could this be one of the proposals from the exiting UK MEPs?

Yes - Cameron took the honourable course, why shouldn't the Commission do likewise? They have lost a major member, given a huge boost to dangerous right-wing factions throughout the union and put the future of the Union at grave risk.

They didn't bungle anything. The Brits are grown ups, they've made their decision. The EU was more than patient with them.

And the Austrian courts have yet to rule on the presidential election there.

You could try handing Juncker a gun and a bottle of whiskey but he'd just think it was elevenses.

Now this has some meat on it. I'd say that Cathy Ashton should be recalled/sent home asap. At the very least, she should be excluded from any Commission business.

Next would be the various British members of the different Commissioners cabinets.

Then, there'd be any British public service staffers in the Commission.

What to do with British MEPs? Eject them from the various parties would probably be first up...kinda forcing them into their own separate voting block. Removal from any sort of committees should also happen.

Realities are hitting fast and hard.

Eradicating British members from European institutions will be a bit of an involved process.

It is like the fall of the Soviet Union all over again. With respect to Prince, let's party like its 1989?

Speaking of, where will Abramovich & Co. go to?

Remember Juncker was appointed over the strongest opposition from Britain. Can you imagine any senior official being appointed if Merkel objected.

Good question. And all that Saudi owned property and assets in London may also be problematic.
It won't bother the Saudis too much. They're used to buying depreciating assets.

The EU parliament can only vote yes or no to proposals from the commission, they cannot vote them out.
