To Preside or not to Preside that is the question?
German party cool on Blair for EU......oct26 2009.
Joerg Essen, explained his party's position "We know Tony Blair for a very long time but I must admit there is a sympathy in my party for candidates from a smaller country," he told the BBC.
"We want to bring European countries closer together, and I think if someone is from a smaller country these people are more sensitive and they know the problems of the smaller ones, and I think that would be helpful for Europe. Europe is too dominated by the biggest ones".

"The EU should have no-one as its president. It is, and always was a treading block and giving it a president will merely blur the line between economic co-operation and political intervention."
