In the 1940s, Adolf Hitler dreamed of being the Führer of the whole of Europe.
In 2009, the job is the same, but is expected to be filled by a different war criminal: Tony Blair.
Czech president Vaclav Klaus has had his opt-out conditions met and is expected to sign the Lisbon Treaty any time now.
The Mail reports
Tony Blair could be crowned first President of Europe at a special summit of EU leaders next month.
Diplomatic sources say French President Nicolas Sarkozy is pushing for an extraordinary meeting in Brussels to install the former prime minister in the new £275,000-a-year post.
Supporters of Mr Blair’s candidacy are racing to get a deal stitched up as doubts grow about whether the forthcoming inquiry into the Iraq war could prove a major stumbling block.
So, even if we get a Tory government in the Spring, we have Blair – BLAIR! – as emperor. What do the Tories have to say:
The Conservatives have told the French that making him EU president would be viewed by an incoming Tory government as a ‘declaration of war’.
I take that to mean they will wave the white flag. This ‘war’ hasn’t been fought Napoleon or Hitler’s way, but with stealth and propaganda. Bit-by-bit; slowly, slowly catchee monkey, and it’s nearly done. Blair prepared the police state at home and so he is perfectly qualified to be Europe’s chief despot.
I look forward to the day he is dragged from his bunker to face charges for his criminal activity: chiefly warmongering and treason.
