Great news, now let's hope Blair doesn't become EU president, and the Brits get what they deserve for their anti-EU attitude.
Blair isn't that popular in the UK. He'd be a lot less country bias than the other names I've heard mentioned.
They seem to be looking to the smaller EU member states to find a candidate for the EU presidency: Belgium (Van Rompuy), The Netherlands (Balkenende), Luxembourg (Juncker),..
Hopefully not just candidates from Benelux. I'd also like to see nominations from Scandinavia, Austria and France.
