The papers are getting very excited about Tony Blair becoming President of the EU. Try as I might I just can't get exercised about it.
My overwhelming thought is that the EU and Tony Blair deserve each other. Or am I being unfair on Tony Blair?
It seems to me that flailing around trying to carve out a role for yourself on the world stage is something both Blair and the EU have been trying to do for several years. And neither have met with huge success.
Still, I wish Mr Blair the very best of luck. If anything guarantees that this country remains overwhelmingly eurosceptic, it would be the prospect of him becoming President of the EU.
