Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

stanley's blog : The 2009 EU Troika

A new EU Commission takes office on 1 November 2009. The Lisbon Treaty is expected to come into force officially on 1 January 2009 but this date may slip. There is talk of a postponement until 1 November, but this would be of doubtful validity.

This gives rise to an intriguing situation relating to three key appointments: President of the European Council (EC), Foreign Policy Chief (oka `High Representative for Union Foreign Affairs and Security Policy') and President of the Commission. The orientation of the three and their ability to cooperate closely will be critical for the future of the Union.
