From British daily The Independent:

Hope fades over EU role for Blair

Tony Blair had hoped to become the first permanent president of the European Union Council

By John Lichfield in Paris

Wednesday, 7 May 2008

Tony Blair received an unwelcome 55th birthday present from France yesterday. President Nicolas Sarkozy has abandoned his efforts to push the former prime minister’s claim to be the first permanent president of the European Union Council from next year.

M. Sarkozy, who takes over the rotating EU presidency in July, is now backing the candidature of Jean-Claude Juncker, the Luxembourg Prime Minister, according to senior French officials. The French President was once a strong Blair-backer, floating the idea himself last year, but he has bowed to pressure from other EU governments.

Tony Blair supported Rightist Sarkozy against moderate social democrat Segolene Royal in the French presidential elections.

And for this favour, Sarkozy now stabs me in the back, Blair may think.

Good that Blair does not get that job.

However, he still should go to the continent of Europe: not as political leader, but as a a suspect in a war crimes trial in the Hague.
