    Guy Verhofstadt versus Tony Blair

    Posted by Ivo Cerckel on July 20th, 2009

    Former British prime minister, Tony Blair, seems to be sure to get the yet-to-be-created post of president of the European union.

    In 2004, Blair opposed the candidacy of (now former) Belgian prime minister Guy Verhofstadt as president of the commission of the European union.

    Former Portuguese prime minister José Manuel Durão Barroso is assuming the post since 23 November 2004.

    Barroso now has to be re-elected or not.

    Last June, Verhofstadt was elected as member of the parliament of the European union.

    A Blair & Barroso team heading the European union would be hell for that union, says Wolfgang Münchau this morning in the Financial Times. (1)

    Verhofstadt is still available …
