"Brown backs Blair as British choice for President of Europe" is the headline for a piece in The Times. The news was given by Baroness Kinnock.
"The UK government is supporting Tony Blair's candidature for President of the Council," Mrs Kinnock told journalists in Strasbourg today.
"I am not saying there has been any formal confirmation or statement from Tony but it is certainly is the Government's position. I am sure they would not do it without asking him."
She added: "Tony Blair is seen by many as someone who has the strength of character, the stature, people know who he is and he would be someone who would have this role and step into with a lot of respect and I think would be generally welcomed."
Apart from his grossly anti-life and anti-family policies when in office, I am not sure that many EU governments would want to be associated with the cause of so much destruction in Iraq.
John Smeaton has this take on the story:
Pro-life/pro-family supporters must make it clear to their political representatives that Mr Blair's nomination is totally unacceptable.
