    seems mad ehhh
    but
    1 sooty and sweep can be understood in all member countries
    2 they are recognisable
    3 no other political ties
    4 not been involved in any expenses scandal
    5 sweep can control sooty so he dosn't get carried away start declaring war and or invading other countries
    6 not been involved with shady ex presidents
    7 sue could be an american spokes person for sooty and sweep after all they did believe Condoleeza Rice
    8 has not been to public school and hand out contracts to friends the old school tie and stuff
    9 not been bought of by oil companies or rich daddy syndrome [daddy bush]
    10 never gave away a peerage or other title

    I don't think our cousins across the pond would know who sooty and sweep are (puppets) but I would def' vote for them over Teflon Tony.

    Or we could choose George, Zippy & Bungle.

    Tony is hardly going to be Prez - I'll put my money on any Corservative or Christian Democrat before Tony. Besides, I highly doubt the Prez job will go to the UK...

    Yeah, but Sue has a whole lot on Sootie and Sweep. Not as much as we have on slimey Tony. That golem of a war criminal is being protected by some pretty sleazy people. Look at the millions he is stuffing in his pockets as Middle East envoy and he has done bugger all for those poor people there. Once over the Labour party was a fortress of honourable, caring men and women; now it is a refuge for anyone on the make.

    Sigh... again... Chairman of the European Council... NOT president. The Council doesn't even have that much power. And I have no diea who the people or puppets? are that you're talking about. Are they from a show on tv or so?

    Glenn - correct! it's President of the European Council - but as this consists of the Heads of Government of EU Member States, and is a sort of EU steering group, it's pretty powerful, plus Lisbon enshrines it as an official EU insitution.

    It's been described as the cabinet of EU Government. The President will almost certainly been seen as a pivotal figurehead for the EU.

    Sooty, Sweep and Soo are puppets from a UK kiddies programme, and probably would be preferred by many Brits to Tony Blair, lol. :p

    123scotty - I think Sooty could represent the EPP, while Sweep would cater for the Socialist grouping in the EU Parliament, so they have all bases covered! Plus, Soo would be miles better than Viviane Redding or Margot Wallstrom as a Commissioner. ;)

    Good call whoever mentioned Zippy! and Oscar the Grouch to succeed Obama!!! :D

    I know the heads of government are in the European Council. But don't confuse it with the Council of the European Union (which would be more powerful than the European Council) or the Council of Europe. (They're so original when it comes to names).

    Hmmm, well i don't agree with a lot of Labour politics but irrespective i felt Tony Blair has strong leadership abilities. Whoever gets the job is going to be squeezed to do the right thing whichever their political swing is so why not Mr B.

    Ok folks here's the deal Europe is a great idea it came about slowly but the main thing is a united Europe is the only thing that stands against American ideology and European values, Europe is the greatest thing that could happen to world politics it has lots of faults .but from within you can make a difference. From outside you can only shout. Faults exist but can be corrected its up to Europeans to stand up be proud of what you are and make a stand. Stand up and be proud of your nationality and being a united European .

    Mitchy - yeh, I agree (reluctantly) he has good leadership qualities, etc - but I just don't like what he does with them lol - or his views on Europe.

    I am very wary about European intergration but i cant help thinking that as a whole we may be better off. The UK, France and Germany might be fine if we pulled out but for how long before the combined resources and bigger competition began to do us harm. I am all for intergration at a much slower rate than it has been moving though and i'm still not sure that i would want to see a dare i say a USE! :eek:

    Yeh I know. :redface: But I kinda get the feeling that's what a lot of Euro-politicians DO want (read me blog, lol)...so to avoid that, but keep trade relationships going, I'd prefer a Norwegian style semi-detached relationship, where we retain our independence, but remain friendly and supportive.

    Blair couldn't lead a group of boy scouts. He is a scoundrel and a coward. Anyone who admires him is as self serving as the golem himself.

    Blair has acted without integrity. He took us into a war on evidence about WMD he knew was sexed up. Thousands have died. He has blood on his hands. He has sold out Britain's interests to Europe and he has betrayed the people of Britain by reneging on his promise to hold a referendum on Lisbon. He is a very clever man and he would be an effective leader, but in view of his moral failings these qualities are dangerous. He should not be doing any public job - whether President of Europe or Middle East Supremo or anything else. Indeed a trial and a prison cell should be his future.

    The people of Britain have been betrayed into Lisbon. For president I would like to see some total unknown - someone who is not going to present himself as President of Europe as Blair would but rather as a committee chairman. If when the president is announced I say "who's that?" I'll be pleased. The weaker the president and the weaker the implementation of Lisbon the better.

    Silly thought for late evening. What if the Conservatives get elected on a pretty Euro-sceptic manifesto then simply announce "The UK does not accept the right of the President to represent the UK". I know there is the legal response of tough, it's a done deal. But de facto no country outside Europe would deal with the President on UK matters after such a statement. What if the Conservatives lodged an EU legal challenge to the validity of the Lisbon Treaty on the grounds that the British assent was granted in breach of a manifesto committment and should therefore have been rejected as invalid by the EU, ie the assent is not valid? Indeed in the days between the presumed Czech assent and final ratification is there any EU legal challenge that could be lodged?

    Well:-

    Dipsy discourages confidence in his ability lest he change name to Gung-ho although in which case he and Po will then yield concerns over communism.
    Tinky-winky is obviously a political activist and would spend too much time arguing over policies and that is just with the time he has left over after working out his identity issues and La-La does'nt give a rats ass!

    All in all a colourful option but i'm going to have to veto!
