» Petitions to #stopblair ¦ What You Can Get Away With

Want to stop Tony Blair becoming President of the Council of the European Union? Well, if you’re not one of the 27 leaders in the Council who’ll make the decision (and if you are, please leave a comment) you don’t get a say in the process, so tough.

However, you can sign a petition here that already has over 30,000 people from across the EU opposing his appointment. There’s also one here on the Number 10 website, asking Gordon Brown to stop him though expecting that to happen seems an exercise in futility, though it might get some press interest if it could rise up the list of popular petitions.

And if you’re on Twitter, it looks like the hashtag of choice for this is either #stopblair, #no2blair or my suggestion of #noblair.

And for the record, I think there are good points to the creation of a permanent President and Foreign Minister, though there are flaws in the process by which they’re appointed. However, given the attitude Blair showed to international co-operation over Iraq, I think he’s spectacularly unsuited to the role and appointing him would cause great damage to the EU.
