Why Tony Blair won’t be President of Europe

In January next year, or thereabouts, the European heads of Government will choose a permanent President of Europe, who will serve for two years.

In today’s Le Monde, former French Prime Minister Edouard Balladur explains why he thinks that, although Tony Blair is a good candidate, he can’t be appointed. The main reasons: Britain is so eurosceptic, and Blair is too close to the US.
