And it makes me feel all cold inside. The thought of Blair taking the European Union's imperial purple given the way in which he presented the Reform Treaty/Constitution as a fait accompli to Brown as his last significant act as Prime Minister abhorrent.
Former UK prime minister Tony Blair will attend a conference of French president Nicolas Sarkozy's centre-right party UMP on Saturday (12 January), in what is said to be his first intervention for a party other than his own.
The move is fuelling speculation that Mr Blair, who belongs to the UK's center-left Labour party, is in the running for EU president – a new high-profile job that can be held for up to five years starting in 2009.
The man is sly, slick, disingenuous and has contempt for the people. Perfect qualifications for the job, I suppose.
