Alex Orr (Debate & Opinion, 26 November) claims the Czech Republic is ready to take over the presidency of the European Union. I would agree with him, but how does he square this with the attitude of Andrew Duff, Lib Dem MEP and board member of the International European Movement, who told Czech parliamentarians a couple of weeks ago "he did not think that the Czech Republic could take over the presidency, if they had not ratified the treaty".
It appears the Czechs are acceptable only if they do what they are told.

So nice of the Scotsman to promote me I guess. The full story of Duff's behaviour can be found here.
