EU parliament president Antonio Tajani urged the EU Commission chief to “change his language” after reminding Mr Juncker the Parliament controls the Commission.

The furious row erupted on the floor of the bloc’s parliament in Strasbourg as MEPs looked on in shock.

Mr Tajani said: “Mr President could you please have a more respectful attitude.

“You may criticise the Parliament yes but the Commission does not control the Parliament it’s the Parliament that should be controlling the Commission.”

He later interjected again and said: “Mr President I would ask you please to change your language. We are not ridiculous please, please.”

Amid the extraordinary scenes, Mr Juncker branded the parliament “totally ridiculous” and vowed never to attend any of its meetings again.

The heated tussle broke out when Mr Juncker rose to give his speech to MEPs marking the end of the Maltese presidency of the European Council.

Joseph Muscat, the prime minister of the tiny island, had already given his opening remarks summing up the achievements of his country’s six-month tenure.

But instead of delivering the usual platitudes, the chief eurocrat launched into an extraordinary tirade against the number of European parliamentarians present in the chamber.

He raged: “Mr President, Prime Minister, members of the European Parliament. I would like to welcome those that have actually taken the trouble to turn out this morning.
