The EU proving its Socialist Liberal credentials yet again. Like all 'good' socialists they are gradually working towards telling the people what to say - think - and do - for their own good.
Mr Obama will be very happy with this appointment since he is Liberal socialist too - perhaps more Liberal than socialist.
I sincerely hope the people of Britain kick the EU out of their lives completely. Although other things threaten the UK like so called Scottish independence - which translated means for Alex Salmond - Transfer Scotland from Westminster to Brussels. Which is ZERO independence.
