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

There was a German official who ran the show for Juncker and didn't approve of VD Leyen and didn't make it easy for her transition team. She shafted him to some non-job in Austria probably setting standards for Cuckoo clocks etc.. But he was very much feared in his day. Sounds the sort of guy who could smile sweetly at Arlene and ask "now what was your name again?"

Foreplay Brexit Referendum

Rebuffing Cameron, Merkel sticks to Juncker for top EU job | Reuters - June 10, 2014 |

Jean-Claude Juncker promoted German aide Martin Selmayr to top EU post

The Year 2014 was a hellish year across Europe with global repercussions.... Kiev Maiden Revolt - Sevastopol revanche - hostilities and downing MH-17 - USIL establishes caliphate in Raqqa - Cameron stands alone with Rutte ... a pivotal ending for the EU and unity. Tough to recover, may continu slide downwards due to wind in the sails for populist leaders.

Division East-West and New-Old Europe. The US, Russia, UK and Israel seek advantage in wrecking the economic might of the EU.

Ah yes, our old friend Martin Selmayr nicknamed "the monster" would be just the man for the job!
