Baroness Ashton: EU couldn’t make it up

Baroness Ashton: EU couldn’t make it up - Times Online
The plotting and bungles that led to an obscure British bureaucrat heading the EU’s foreign service were even greater than first thought. She now commands staff in 130 countries.
Quite an extensive article on the scretiveness and duplicity of the EU.

The bit that made me laugh, however, was the following:
Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, the former French president and “framer” of the EU’s constitution, was also dismayed at the insignificance of Ashton and van Rompuy, saying that he would have preferred a figure of the stature of George Washington as president.

“When the Americans in Philadelphia sought a personality to lead their new state, they chose ... the conqueror in the war of independence, as their founding president,” intoned d’Estaing. “I would have preferred a strong president corresponding to this profile.”
It just shows how delusional the EU regime and its supporters are - just where does D'Estaing think they could find anyone of the stature of Washington among the European political classes?
