On her EUobserver blog Behind the scenes, Honor Mahony dissects four different ways to apply for an EU top job, in this case the president of the European Council, in Imagine that! (29 October 2009).
Since we are heading towards Halloween (Samhain or All Saints) weekend, with or without pumpkins, Mahony’s perspicacity could be construed as a fifth way, if our leaders were to hold such a quaint quality in high esteem.
Why not (s)elect someone outside your cosy club?
Anyway, nice weekend reading for the rest of us.
