A Blair = A B LIAR end of argument: it is the opinion of most properly informed people he has proved himself totally unsuited to a position of importance through his own ideas of self-importance. We ned someone who cares about UK plc not themselves plc…..

Despite having to drag a nation that aspires ever more to match the peerless ignorance of the U.S population , his realignment of pragmatic politics was a joy to watch.

He gets things done without the machine noticing and his sleight of hand when it comes to directing people to do the right thing despite their stupidity is unmatched.

President of Europe is too small for the Blair, Emperor of Earth would suit.

has the Pound been linked (in-)to the Euro yet ?

“In British eyes, Juncker personfies “old Europe” — a federalist from a tiny country which prospers as a sort of giant safe-deposit box at the heart of a Franco-German Europe.” :-

When I last visited this would have been an accurate description of the UK with all its riches and being a massive global hub of money being passed around.

Well, examine the reasoning behind this stance and you will truly see where Europhobia begins.

Do you really wish to inflict the imbecile Blair upon us given the overwhelming and incontrivertible evidence that now makes him a pariah in our midst ?

Read and understand the comments made by Barry, and catherine.williams et al and try and see through the drivel that is being put out in support of this man

Give us then your detailed reasoning for wishing to impose Blair,an unconscionable burden,on others who with good reason see things differently, and with excellent cause.

Not only against the wishes of the people of this country ‘Not to take our troops in Iraq. After leaving No 10 and apparently becoming a ‘Peace keeper Ambassador’ for the Middle East,have we heard anything about this posting, not to my knowledge, has he done anything for the peace in the Middle East? Unless I have missed the news for many monthS, the answer is NO. Now to add insult to injury he is now seeing himself as the President for the EU Commission, I have never heard Blair being really ‘pro’ EU anyway,again EGO is talking over again. I think this time his popularity is rather low, nobody really will forget this man for siding up with Bush and taking us to Irap. How can anybody trust this man ever again. Now of course Brown has to ridicule himself yet again in backing Blair, a man he wanted out of his way to enter No 10 which of course he will leave very quickly. I wonder next where Blair’s ego will take him, as far as I feel as far as possible from all of us. I can only hope.
Catherine

A United Europe under one banner is the only way forward if we are to avoid being marginalised to edge of the global market and carry any weight what so ever in global affairs. We need someone charismatic at the helm who has some kind of standing and that can be reckoned with. Blair is the ideal candidate regardless of what he’s done in the past. Berlusconi is ok for the Italians, Sarkozi for the French neither have a sparkling background. Give him the job.

A truly democratic British government would have given us a referendum on this truly historic matter, following which our comments would have had a completely different weight. What a waste of our history. Only the complete buffoon Blair could have brought us to this point in time, assisted by an equally incompetent and unelected acolyte,and his adherents.

Our voice on the world stage? I hear only an echo, echo, echo…….

He is not exactly our answer to Obama, but he is smart, will not frighten anyone in the european union, is consensus minded and doesn’t have a important hidden agenda, apart from the fact that he is probably willing to cut his arm off to get out of smallish Dutch politics.
