Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I opposed Bliars Presidential style when in office, his spin doctoring, obsession with presentation, poodling up to Bush, and above all his close to treasonous war on Iraq.

However just for the hell of it I will take the contrarian view.  A leader of his stature is just what the EU needs to be taken seriously by the world and by its own citizens.  Sure he would be controversial.  Good.  Lets have the rows.  At the end of the day he would be subject to the decisions of the council.

Are we seriously saying Jean-Claude Juncker is the best alternative?  Bertie Ahern would be better!  And you can have him.  Ireland is finished with him...
