Satisfyingly useless

Nanny Ashton's utter uselessness as the EU's Foreign Minister is satisfying beyond words. Even Banana Boy performs more credibly on the international stage.

Her complete failure over Haiti signals that after several weeks in her new job she is now ready for retirement. For the third time. Another pay-off, another £260k in transitional allowances and another fat pension pot will see her comfortably ensconced in some unfortunate English village where she can encourage young girls to become pregnant, as she did in one of her previous brief careers.

No, there is only one person who can fill Nanny's shoes in Europe; I nominate John Bercow.

I doubt she has enough contacts, credibility, expertise and goodwill to make a success of her role.

Not sure if that is a good thing for Britain's standing on the global stage, though. The last thing we need is another high-profile international failure.

Another £260k? Another fat pension? I could be that useless!

All we need now is Greece to exit the Euro and we will be on a roll.

Its the way they play the system.

Just stay long enough to get the nod from cronies, and then apply via The Grauniad for the next failing position.

Then let it fail some more.

Utter disgrace, and complete arrogance which should be rewarded with a bloody good hiding.

Beauty and brains. Such a rare combination.
