UK government cuddles up to Tony Blair

The UK government is today mounting a vigorous campaign to push Tony Blair for the EU presidency despite the fact that many of his supporters within the EU appear to have disappeared. It is unclear why the UK government is being so proactive with regards to Tony Blair and the EU presidency because there is much documented friction between Gordon Brown and Tony Blair in the past.

The main force behind this latest push would appear to be Lord Mandelson who has always been a firm supporter of Tony Blair and indeed ruined his earlier friendship with Gordon Brown by siding with his arch enemy. The very fact we are seeing an unelected Prime Minister of the UK pushing Tony Blair into an unelected role in the EU perfectly reflects the rather bizarre political and economic situation we have in the UK.

Despite growing public anger against the way the EU is taking on a more proactive role within the UK economy and the UK in general, the government seems determined to push for closer ties between the UK and EU and would appear to see Tony Blair as the perfect ally within EU ranks. Whether this will go down well with UK voters remains to be seen!
