Dammit, I forgot to vote.

Who did you vote for to be your President? I didn't vote for this dodgy looking loon - "Belgian PM named as EU president"

Europe wanted a 'face' for the world stage so the French and Germans picked a nobody so their own influence wasn't diminished, pointless.

The Flemish and the Walloons were squabbling and couldn't form a coalition for several months so they picked the candidate none of them hated because nobody had heard of him.

So they picked a "John Major" type to be president of Europe ... that' s just G-R-E-A-T, make a joke of our region why not.

And I'm not happy about this UK labour hag being appointed his 'second in command' or at least having a security and foreign affairs role.

I notice the BBC's "Have Your Say" on the matter is not in the normal format. Obviously most people told them exactly what they thought!

Anything to get rid of the useless tosser.

The Germans aren't too bothered about this position which is why they didn't put anyone forward, they're also working to their own agenda as they're after the presidency of the European Bank. Probably a more important role

I was the first woman British commissioner, the first woman trade commissioner, so I am also proud to be the first woman High Representative," she said.

"I think there was a strong push to have at least one woman in a senior position," she told the BBC later, adding that she hoped Europe would become "an economic superpower".

It's nice that the wimmin get something but I think she's just a tad delusional...:freaky:
