"Juncker on the spot for his intransigence in ordering EVERYBODY not to talk to the UK" Not everybody, Juncker created a team to negotiate Brexit led by ex EU Commissioner Michel Barnier.
That team is to negotiate after Article 50. Junker ordered all his officials not to discuss until then. He also ordered all member states to do that same. Therein lies the point of contention. Juncker has no legal authority to order member states not to talk to the UK. Its purely prejudice and could very well have no legal standing.
