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

Looks like only Hedegaard isn't viewing the Commission as a pre-retirement sinecure and she could probably have more influence on climate change at EU rather than Danish level.  There was talk of Ireland going for the Agriculture portfolio but that has died down, so maybe they expect Fisher Boel to stay on.

I don't think Boel views it as a sinecure. I just don't have any particular confidence in her competence, and even less in the kind of policies her backers want her to push.
