Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bertie turned down the job of President of the EU Commission and arranged for Barroso to get it instead.

Does Bertie credit himself with that? Methinks Aznar and B also had a big role in it, but most important was Bliar, this was his only real EU success.

Maybe you and The3rdColumn don't remember, but the candidate Bliar wanted to and succeeded in nudging out was Juncker. (It shall come as no surprise that Juncker would later say, We Don't Need Britain!...)
