A mad thought: Jack O’Connor/David Begg for Commissioner?

David Begg

Mmmm. Beardy.

Jack O'Connor

There’s much talk about who should go out to Brussels to replace Charlie McCreevy later this year. Apparently, the government is wary of sending out a sitting minister for fear of losing the byelection.

Why not send one of the aforementioned gents? It’ll allow the government to show it’s serious about workers rights, get the unions on board for Lisbon II, and avoid a messy byelection loss.

Just a thought.

Yes, and I suppose the fact that they both have beards has NOTHING to do with it?
