Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here is the latest most inistent rumour:

I'll be president of Europe if you give me the power - Blair | Special Reports | Guardian Unlimited Politics

Tony Blair has been holding discussions with some of his oldest allies on how he could mount a campaign later this year to become full-time president of the EU council, the prestigious new job characterised as "president of Europe". Blair, currently the Middle East envoy for the US, Russia, EU and the UN, has told friends he has made no final decision, but is increasingly willing to put himself forward for the job if it comes with real powers to intervene in defence and trade affairs.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
