"I've come to accept that the life of a frontrunner is a hard one, that he will suffer more injuries than most men and that many of these injuries will not be accidental."
Maybe it's true that the qualified accountant and C-list politician shares many, many similarities with the three-time world-cup winner, multiple world-record goal scorer, holder of several athlete and player of the century awards, and decorated UN ambassador.
For the moment, those parallels escape BM, but we look forward to reading all about them on the blog, which remains curiously dormant for now.
|SPOT THE DIFFERENCE - WHICH IS THE BIGGER LOAD OF BALLS?|
Please stay tuned for new POSTS coming soon.Oh joy! The capitalisation of 'posts' offers so much promise.
The blog was created, and that initial post written, on the 24th October. The very same day that President Barroso wrote to him to request a bit of decorum.
... in the light of certain statements and insinuations you have made in relation to the process of preparation of the revised directive on tobacco, I wish to remind you of your obligation, as a former Commissioner, to behave with integrity in accordance with Article 245 TFEU.Looks like the old muttonhead may not go quietly into the night though, instead perhaps petulantly planning to throw around as much mud as he can lay his hands on.
Let loose, Dalli! Go for it, son! Tell us all how you're being set up by the tobacco industry after having tabled a directive which completely ignored the views of people who responded to the consultation while listening intently to those of the pharmaceutical industry.
For those of us who wish to see EU corruption ruthlessly exposed and also think the directive is deeply-flawed, I make that a no-lose situation. Either Dalli is compromised - which means someone will have to consider the consultation properly - or Barroso's EU is and no-one can ever again trust a word his administration says.
Bring it on, I say.
