Even although the job doesn’t even exist at the time of my writing this and won’t come into existence if the Irish don’t ratify the Lisbon Treaty, there are of course, already forces at play behind the scenes, working towards getting Tony the “two hundred grand a year plus perks” job as the EU president. After all Tony will be “Uncle Sam’s” man and we could, indeed, in the not to distant future be witnessing the hypocritical Tony visiting the “hype man” in Washington in his role as the EU president, a Tony who will already be wheeling and dealing, scamming and scheming, while sending his opponents reeling as he accumulates that very particular aphrodisiac, that wonderful feeling, of power.
Still all is not lost; there will be resistance from the “Quai d’ Orsay’ and “das Auswärtige Amt” as they attempt to fend off this audacious attempt by the “hype man” and the hypocrite to bring German and French foreign policy under the sway of Anglo-Saxon “Realpolitik”. Moreover, my knowledge of Germany, at least, where they actually care about and look after their individual citizens, suggests that this resistance might be successful, and the last thing they want are body bags pouring in from distant illegal wars or as they say in German; “nie wieder”!
