William Hague being very funny about President Blair.

Probably the best speaker in current British politics.

William Hague paints out a nightmare scenario for Gordon Brown about EU President Blair here. ┬áVery funny. Having seen Hague speak in person, I think he’s a remarkable example of a guy finding his niche in life, and that reaching the top is not necessarily the Be-All-And-End-All.

Funnily enough, for those of us who support a united Europe, he makes a very good case for Blair!

But should we look for a country and a person with strong European credentials, rather than media personality, to fill the new post?

I hardly think being British Prime Minister is just a media personality! You make a fair point about strong European credentials, but it might be good for Europeans to actually have a president that they have heard of. Having said that, the fact that he will be chosen by dinner party and not by a vote of the people of Europe is pretty disgraceful.
