This coming Wednesday 27-October votes the European Parliament on whether to approve the incoming European Commission. Small problem, Dr. Rocco Buttiglione, 56, a friend of Pope John Paul and an Italian Roman Catholic conservative for the inappropriate job. Rocco Buttiglione, the controversial Italian nominee for Commissioner for Freedom, Security and Justice at the European Parliament, issued a public "mea culpa" last week as in the event that a conflict arose between his personal views and his duties as a commissioner. The devout Roman Catholic has since apologised for saying homosexuality was a "sin" and that marriage was an institution that allowed women to rear children with the protection of a male. The European parliament appears to be divided on whether EU commission president, Jose Manuel Barroso, should remove Rocco Buttiglione as a candidate for the post of justice minister. The Thriller is that EU Parliament has no right to veto individual commissioners and can only accept or reject Barroso's entire team. Ofcourse Mr Barroso was urged to make the fight against discrimination and prejudice "the hallmark" of his presidency. Will it be to late ? I hope so, what to do think ?
