    Oh god… say it ain't so…
    Not officially confirmed, of course.

    Blair/Berlusconi/Sarkozy… what a triumvirate of smugness that'll be.

    The only place Mr. Anthony Blair should be going is the Hague. Instead, it's all aboard the EU gravy train. C**t.

    Alas, not Den Haag, just Brussels.
    Don't think him and Cherie didn't have this all mapped out years ago.

    I think Lord Sleazy-Mandelson of the Whole Wide World has it all mapped out, and his aim is to get his master back into a position of power.

    What next, Blair's bezzie mate George to be the leader of the UN?

    An extremely good reason to ensure the Lisbon Treaty does not get ratified.

    Nobody has yet given me a good reason as to why the EU even needs a president.

    I am just waiting for Gordon Brown to "Officially" deny it… then we'll know it is true.

    :D
    Maybe Bush has his sights set on becoming UN Secretary General come 2011?
    Imagine the havoc he could wreak. :eek:

    That's Europe's best hope! If Brown supports Blair then his campaign is doomed. ;)

    Blair is better liked than Bush - and other than Iraq was competent.

    George Bush is sitting in Crawford sipping mint juleps on his porch. He's also probably collecting a lot of money from all the people whose pockets he lined. He doesn't care about politics.

    I don't think the Cash for Peerages affair exactly covered him in glory.

    That's like saying Peter Sutcliffe was a nice bloke if you overlook the murders. ;)

    His role in the Iraq War (probably treasonous and a war crime) is not something to be overlooked lightly.


    Or Bernie Ecclestone and his £1 million donation. "I'm a pretty straight sort of guy." Of course you are Tony, of course you are.

    The US :D

    It is up to the Irish, but they will have to keep holding elections until they vote yes.

    As for Blair - if you kicked him in the balls he would still grin. 'My Name Is Blair' will never happen.

    Cheers,

    Blair 'excellent' for EU job - PM

    So after officially denying that they are lobbying for Tony as Prez, No. 10 finally spilt the beans yesterday.

    And today Gordon's telling everyone who will listen:

    Link…

    So there we have it.
    Hopefully commonsense will prevail and the other EU members will say "No; Non; Nee; Nein; Ne; Nie or όχι!"

    That is damn scary. If this happens, I have to seriously question the sanity of Europe.
