It's a bit late, but...

I'm officially (and belatedly) supporting the Anyone But Barroso Campaign. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise given my recent rants.

I didn't join before because I felt that most Commission Presidents would be pretty hands off in national politics anyway, but the total incompetence in dealing with the economic crisis - and area where the Commission should be keen to prove its worth, and where it could actually work to make a difference - has made a convert out of me.


  1. So who should one vote for in a European election where there is not one official candidate for the post of Commission President (as far as I know)?

  2. Who knows? Perhaps the Socialists, and then the Commission President would have to be drawn from their political family? But then I've heard that they've given up on opposing him.
