No President Blair

- November 19, 2009

As a quick follow up to my “previous post on Tony Blair”:https://themonkeycage.org/2009/11/where_have_you_gone_tony_blair.html, it is now official that Blair is “out of the running for the post of EU President”:http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/20/world/europe/20union.html. Any thoughts from Monkey Cage readers on the consequences of this decision? Will this “reduce the union’s ‘opportunity to have a clear voice in the world’” as the “Swedish foreign minister suggested”:http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/20/world/europe/20union.html?

Of course, this does mean Blair is still available to “return as British Prime Minister”:https://themonkeycage.org/2009/11/where_have_you_gone_tony_blair.html… πŸ™‚
