Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is very interesting but the faux pas of attempting to close the Irish border over vaccines was entirely of vdL's making and she went on to blame a Commissioner's staff (may have been Dombrovskis). She is a worthy contender for the title of worst Commission President in my memory, though so far she's outdone by Santer and Barroso. And of course the Council got the Commissioner they wanted.
