EU Parliament
United Kingdom

Now that the Irish have voted "Yes" to the Lisbon Treaty in what looks like a convincing vote attention once more turns to the post of President of the European Council and unfortunately Tony Blair seems to be a front runner.

I say unfortunately as not only have we not had a referendum despite Blair saying in the Labour election manifesto in 2005 "We will put it [the constitution] to the British people in a referendum and campaign wholeheartedly for a Yes vote."

But also that this is a man who has not yet properly apologised for taking us into an illegal war based on a ‘pack of lies’ and who is embroiled in the Serious Fraud Office's investigation into alleged bribery surrounding BAE Systems' contracts with Saudi Arabia.

I actually don’t think Blair is a ‘bad’ man I think that his arrogance makes him unsuitable for public office.

We, the undersigned, call on the EU to not under any circumstances consider Tony Blair as President of the European Council.
