Napoleon reborn


According to the Telegraph, the imperious Giscard d'Estaing has made it clear that Blair 'cannot be president of Europe' – and note please that he says 'Europe', not the EU but Europe itself.

Oddly, what he didn't say was that the reason was because, clearly, only he could be president. As is his obvious right.

So bog off Tone. Only former French presidents need apply. So long as they are Giscard d'Estaing, of course.

I think you might be unerringly accurate on this score.

The only sensible thing that grasping pompous Frog has ever said. I'm with him wholeheartedly on this one. Mmme Lettre-Cache as Premiere Femme? Aarrghhh!

The more obnoxious the President, the better, AFAIAC - that'll speed up disintegration of EU all the more! Maybe there's somebody even more odious that TB or G d'E? Gerhard Schröder, perhaps?
