Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - A petition against a Tony Blair presidency of the European Union
En violation du droit international, Tony Blair a engagé son pays dans une guerre à laquelle une vaste majorité des citoyens européens étaient opposés.
Can we say that not only the war was opposed by the majority of European citizens but also by a majority of his own (British) citizens? A head of government is not exactly supposed to make policy for the European public, but Blair's disregard for the opinions of the British people on controversial issues and specifically on Iraq is well documented.

We have met the enemy, and he is us — Pogo

I don't think a national leader who blatantly disregarded Europe for (ostensible) national interests is fit for Council Presidency, either.

Yes. Make a reference to the 2 million protesters in London as well. Let's emphasize how much this guy does not care about the plebs and their insignificant opinions.
