A DEFIANT David Cameron has pledged to fight to block the appointment of veteran federalist Jean-Claude Juncker to Europe's top job "right to the very end".

But his campaign suffered a fresh blow when Taavi Roivas, the Estonian Prime Minister, on a visit to Downing Street, insisted Mr Juncker was the right man to become president of the European Commission.
