Another reason they won't make Blair EU President

Blair's abject failure in the Middle East, a graveyard of political reputations that only an utter narcissist such as Blair would have taken on in the first place, is not the reason Sarkozy has gone cold on him, as the Telegraph reports.

An EU President cannot easily exercise the panoply of ceremonial functions required from a cell in the Hague's remand prison at Scheveningen, or from asylum in the US in flight from a European arrest warrant. Best to avoid the potential embarrassment.
