Parliament to back plan for 'Mr. or Ms. Euro' | EurActiv

Members of the European Parliament are set to endorse a raft of measures which they hope would enable the European Union to recover more quickly and strongly from the negative impacts of the global financial crisis, while ensuring greater financial and economic stability in the future.

The proposals to be debated by the Parliament next week (20 October) include the idea of appointing a 'Mr. or Ms. Euro', who would be in charge of coordinating the bloc's economic policies. This person would take over the responsibilities that are currently shared by three people.

Great idea. Only one person to lobby, so it reduces lobbying costs and since there is only one Mr. Euro, and since "who could imagine that Mr. Euro would conspire with lobbyists?" there can be no conspiracies. So there.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
