EU - a home for failed politicians (again).


Prime Minister Tony Blair's old friend and ally Peter Mandelson is set to resign as a parliamentarian, clearing his way to become Britain's new European Commissioner, a government source says.
"No one doubts Peter Mandelson's abilities or his commitment to Europe, but the nomination of a man who has twice been forced out of the cabinet would be a gift to eurosceptics," said Chris Davies, leader of the British Liberal Democrat MEPs.

Oh no - I'm off for a strong drink - I actually agree with a Lib Dem MEP, I don't think that has ever happened before.


Yet another example, as if we needed one, of NuLabour having no honour
