David Miliband refuses EU FM Job - Solana has high price consultant bid -- WHAT NEXT IN EU?

David Miliband has definitively declined the EU Foreign Minister job created and defined by Javier Solana. Javier Solana has reportedly been signed by the Acciona Group as a "consultant" on its international projects. My guess was that he was offered A LOT OF MONEY for the job.

My educated guess is that since the USA opposes Italy's Massimo D'Alema because of Italy's criminal court convictions of 23 CIA agents found guilty there of illegal rendition that despite Frattini's optimistic projection that he may get the job, he probably will not.

My present guess is that Solana will be persuaded to stay on, but only with enormous power concessions to him. Time will tell.

EU's military and tangled foreign policy concerns will at least appear to require somebody of Solana's stature and long experience both in running NATO and the EU itself. What will happen next?

Stay tuned!


No questions?
Constance I don't know which news report is the most current!!!! Talk about confusion - I've just read this about David Miliband;

David Miliband's trip to Berlin increases speculation about EU foreign minister's job

Dated 9th November - 1st public comment posted at 10.47pm GMT

Full report;

or tiny;

I believe the story I referenced is the up to date one. I understand it was in Berlin that Miliband definitely refused the EU job.

This is the latest thing I found from BBC 3 hours ago:

Miliband 'will not take EU job'

Mr Miliband has said he was not available to be a candidate
Foreign Secretary David Miliband has rejected the chance to become EU high representative, the BBC understands.
He has been seen as a frontrunner for the foreign affairs job, one of two created by the EU Treaty, even though he had said he was not "available".
But, amid continuing speculation, the BBC understands Mr Miliband told the head of the European socialists' group he was not interested in the job.
Friends have indicated Mr Miliband "sees his future in British politics".
BBC political editor Nick Robinson said Mr Miliband had rejected the lure of high office in Brussels for the uncertainty of life in a Labour government heading for a difficult election.

Some friends have warned him that if he left British politics now he would be portrayed as 'a rat leaving a sinking ship'
Nick Robinson's newslog in full
He said Mr Miliband's friends had told the foreign secretary there was still a small possibility that Gordon Brown might choose to stand down before the election and he would be a natural successor.
Mr Miliband, foreign secretary since 2007, has been touted as a future Labour leader and was urged by some to challenge Mr Brown for the leadership in 2008.
Mr Miliband had responded to speculation he might take the job of EU high representative for foreign affairs by saying he was not "available" to be a candidate.
But speculation continued in several newspapers on Monday that Mr Miliband was still in the running for the EU job, fuelled by his appearance in Germany at celebrations marking 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Candidates must be nominated by the government of one of the EU's 27 member states.
Earlier on Monday Mr Brown's spokesman had been asked if the prime minister would rule out nominating Mr Miliband.
He replied: "The prime minister has no intention of nominating David Miliband, because that is not an eventuality that is actually going to happen, on the basis that David Miliband has made it clear that he doesn't want the job."
Mr Miliband has been campaigning for former Prime Minister Tony Blair to get the other job created by the Lisbon Treaty, that of president of the European Council.
The suggestion has been that Mr Miliband might be in the running for the foreign affairs role if Mr Blair fails to be selected for the job of president.
Sweden currently holds the rotating presidency of the EU and is expected to call a special summit within the next few weeks for leaders to decide on a president and high representative.

Well, I just now looked at the
Times Online article. It appears to be based on the same info as what was in what I linked to, but so much confusion -- for now, who knows?

I'll keep reading and posting.

BBC, 35 minutes ago:

BBC: David Miliband declines EU role
(AP) – 35 minutes ago
LONDON — British foreign minister David Miliband has turned down the chance to become the European Union's envoy to the rest of the world, the BBC reported Monday.
The broadcaster said that Miliband ruled himself out of the race to become the EU's foreign representative in a conversation with former Danish Premier Poul Nyrup Rasmussen Sunday.
Miliband had been mentioned as a possible contender for the new post of European foreign minister, a job created by the recently ratified Lisbon Treaty.
But unlike former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, whose possible candidacy for the post of EU presidency has the endorsement of his successor Gordon Brown, U.K. officials have been cool to the idea of parachuting Miliband into a European role.
Earlier this month Harriet Harman, the deputy leader of Brown's ruling Labour Party, said she could not spare Miliband.
"He is our foreign secretary," Harman said in an appearance on a Sunday television talk show. "I don't think he wants to go ... and we'll be keeping him here."
The BBC quoted Brown's spokesman as saying earlier Monday that the leader "has no intention of nominating David Miliband, because that is not an eventuality that is actually going to happen, on the basis that David Miliband has made it clear that he doesn't want the job."
Miliband himself strongly hinted that he was not interested in the role last month when he said that he was "absolutely to committed" to a U.K. role.
Britain's Foreign Office did not immediately return a call seeking comment early Tuesday.
This reference to Solana in the Euractiv article may be telling:

The Treaty of Lisbon, expected to enter into force on 1 December 2009, introduces the new 'top jobs' of a high-profile president who will chair EU summit meetings for a two-and-a-half year term (for more details, see EurActiv LinksDossier on 'Choosing Mr(s). Europe'), and a High Representative for Foreign Affairs, who will also be a vice-president of the European Commission.

Nationality, geography (North-South, East-West), gender, the size of the country, and political affiliation and stature are all taken into account when European leaders horsetrade over the top EU jobs.

The European left's strategy has been to push strongly for a centre-left politician to be given the new job of High Representative for Foreign Affairs, in part capitalising on the good record of Javier Solana, a Spanish socialist, as foreign policy chief (EurActiv 19/10/09). "

Thanks Constance.

I have to smile at the unusual comment, "... the BBC understands."

No wonder I struggle when even the beeb's report hedges it's bets!

Refresh your browser and look at the picture of Solana next to Angela Merkel at tonight's EU leader dinner. He looks MIGHTY HAPPY. Is it the fat new contract from Acciona? Or is it the possible incentives he might have been offered to stay on with the EU? At any rate, he looks MIGHTY HAPPY! I wonder why????!!!!
Another fascinating development: This article jointly by Russia's Lavarov and Italy's FM Frattini on A NEW WORLD ORDER.

Read this one carefully!

"Italy - Article by Minister Frattini and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov: “A New World Order”

At twenty years on from the fall of the Berlin Wall, two new concepts have shown up on the Euro-Atlantic and international agenda: “the common European home” and the “new world order”. Two concepts, as yet unrealised but, in any case, complementary: a new world order based on inter-dependence and cooperation in resolving common problems cannot do without a “Greater Europe” stretching from the Atlantic to Vladivostok. Only a Europe of this sort, with a global vision and shared goals, will be able to ensure stability on our continent. How far are we from realizing this project, which Charles de Gaulle suggested back in the Cold War era?

Awareness has begun to take, albeit fragile, root over the last two decades that maintaining divisions on the continent of Europe compromises the security of all; the nuclear threat and that of any other major war have been laid to rest; the sad chapter of the Balkans war has come to a close, although some differences persist, the negative effect on European of the Caucasus crisis of last summer. Much has been done to strengthen the strategic nature of relations between Russia and the European Union, and not least on the institutional plane. In 1996 Russia forged a Partnership and Collaboration Accord with the EU; in 2004 Russia and the European Union reached agreement on four “common areas”. The EU is Russia’s main economic partner today. This includes the strategic sector of energy, although a modern energy security system that balances the interests of energy producer, transit and consumer countries, as agreed by the G8 leaders at St. Petersburg, has yet to be created. Collaboration between Russia and the Atlantic Alliance has been structured as a result of the NATO-Russia Council created at Pratica di Mare in 2002.

Is this a lot or a little? It is no small accomplishment, but neither is it sufficient. The fall of the Berlin wall triggered the emancipation of international relations from the earlier constraints of ideological confrontation. Nevertheless it must be acknowledged that an adequate political response has not been forthcoming. Pan-European political collaboration has not yet made that leap in quality to meet the new challenges and threats. And yet, faced with the “new threats” of our century—ranging from terrorism to nuclear proliferation, international crime, environmental deterioration, energy and the problems of economic-financial stability—it is now that we need a strong and cohesive political partnership in this pan-European area. In other words, the “new world order” needs the “common European home”.

view original source"

Continued from last post:

"We believe that, in order to build this «common home», the following priorities must be established.

First of all, the political reinforcement of relations between NATO and Russia on the basis of a real partnership and in light of reciprocal security interests; secondly, the outlining within the framework of the negotiations under way, of a new accord between the European Union and Russia to make way for not only an economic but a political strategic partnership; finally, the creation of a new European security architecture, which is already being discussed in various European settings.

Such an architecture could avail itself of the existing synergies between the various institutions and organizations in the pan-European area (OSCE, NATO, EU, CIS and CSTO) based on common interests and the increasing need for closer cooperation between the European Union, the US, and Russia. In other words, there is a need to strengthen and put into practice those principles contained in the Helsinki Act, the OSCE acquis and the Declaration of Pratica di Mare on the NATO-Russia Council. This would allow for the creation of a common area of security throughout the entire Euro-Atlantic on the basis of a new shared vision of the world as it really is.

We appreciate the contributions made thus far, or that will be made, by the leaders of this pan-European process toward achieving this goal. We must all share the responsibility for ensuring global security as it is understood today. The soon to come into effect Treaty of Lisbon, as well as the achievement of new quality in Russian-American relations, will open up new opportunities for Euro-Atlantic relations that must not be missed. At stake is the future of our entire region and its role in the increasingly complex and pluralistic international system of the 21st century, in which we want diversity to become added value and a factor in stability and development rather than in conflict."

Good up to date reporting Constance. Thank you.


I'm doing a post that involves Tony Blair and I just popped in to give you an interest link. But WOW, the last comment you posted blows this one away!!! This is happening so very fast. All the initiatives are now blending and converging.

Thank goodness Dr. Solana has decided to help out and stay on! How gracious and wonderful of him.

I concur that he will stay on with getting more power, money, and who knows what else. Let us not forget he normally gives himself a diplomatic present around this time of year.

I've heard nothing good ever about Peter Mandelson. I currently understand he would be a very long shot -- Britain would have to nominate him first. I understand he is a notorious homosexual. Then maybe Germany's Foreign Minister (also reportedly openly gay) would be for him.

Peter Mandelson makes Javier Solana appear comparatively saintly. Mandelson has a Brazilian boyfriend who was just granted British citizenship. The boyfriend is 20 years younger than Lord Mandelson.

Hi Constance,
Having read the comments on Lord Mandelson I "googled" his name and got this delightful little clip from U-Tube. I LOVE the words in view of your latest post at 1:18 and think they are VERY apt!!!
Solana may have been given this latest post as a golden handshake for services rendered
Tony Blair was similarly rewarded by his global sponsors, taking a position with J.P Morgan and then Credit Suisse as Advisor on Global economics.
Mandelson is a very dark character indeed. One of the chief architects of New Labour, he has a seemingly indestructable political career.
I would not see him taking a high profile job as he prefers to work behind the scenes.
I still have a feeling that Blair will take the top job.
We will see.
God bless
Just found this amusing piece on Peter Mandelson:

"From The Sunday Times
November 8, 2009
Get me a rope before Mandelson wipes us all out
Jeremy Clarkson

I’ve given the matter a great deal of thought all week, and I’m afraid I’ve decided that it’s no good putting Peter Mandelson in a prison. I’m afraid he will have to be tied to the front of a van and driven round the country until he isn’t alive any more.

He announced last week that middle-class children will simply not be allowed into the country’s top universities even if they have 4,000 A-levels, because all the places will be taken by Albanians and guillemots and whatever other stupid bandwagon the conniving idiot has leapt onto in the meantime.

I hate Peter Mandelson. I hate his fondness for extremely pale blue jeans and I hate that preposterous moustache he used to sport in the days when he didn’t bother trying to cover up his left-wing fanaticism. I hate the way he quite literally lords it over us even though he’s resigned in disgrace twice, and now holds an important decision-making job for which he was not elected. Mostly, though, I hate him because his one-man war on the bright and the witty and the successful means that half my friends now seem to be taking leave of their senses.

There’s talk of emigration in the air. It’s everywhere I go. Parties. Work. In the supermarket. My daughter is working herself half to death to get good grades at GSCE and can’t see the point because she won’t be going to university, because she doesn’t have a beak or flippers or a qualification in washing windscreens at the lights. She wonders, often, why we don’t live in America.

Then you have the chaps and chapesses who can’t stand the constant raids on their wallets and their privacy. They can’t understand why they are taxed at 50% on their income and then taxed again for driving into the nation’s capital. They can’t understand what happened to the hunt for the weapons of mass destruction. They can’t understand anything. They see the Highway Wombles in those brand new 4x4s that they paid for, and they see the M4 bus lane and they see the speed cameras and the community support officers and they see the Albanians stealing their wheelbarrows and nothing can be done because it’s racist. And they see Alistair Darling handing over £4,350 of their money to not sort out the banking crisis that he doesn’t understand because he’s a small-town solicitor, and they see the stupid war on drugs and the war on drink and the war on smoking and the war on hunting and the war on fun and the war on scientists and the obsession with the climate and the price of train fares soaring past £1,000 and the Guardian power-brokers getting uppity about one shot baboon and not uppity at all about all the dead soldiers in Afghanistan, and how they got rid of Blair only to find the lying twerp is now going to come back even more powerful than ever, and they think, “I’ve had enough of this. I’m off.”

It’s a lovely idea, to get out of this stupid, Fairtrade, Brown-stained, Mandelson- skewed, equal-opportunities, multicultural, carbon-neutral, trendily left, regionally assembled, big-government, trilingual, mosque-drenched, all-the-pigs-are-equal, property-is-theft hellhole and set up shop somewhere else. But where?

You can’t go to France because you need to complete 17 forms in triplicate every time you want to build a greenhouse, and you can’t go to Switzerland because you will be reported to your neighbours by the police and subsequently shot in the head if you don’t sweep your lawn properly, and you can’t go to Italy because you’ll soon tire of waking up in the morning to find a horse’s head in your bed because you forgot to give a man called Don a bundle of used notes for “organising” a plumber."

To be continued
From last re Peter Mandelson:

"You can’t go to Australia because it’s full of things that will eat you, you can’t go to New Zealand because they don’t accept anyone who is more than 40 and you can’t go to Monte Carlo because they don’t accept anyone who has less than 40 mill. And you can’t go to Spain because you’re not called Del and you weren’t involved in the Walthamstow blag. And you can’t go to Germany ... because you just can’t.

The Caribbean sounds tempting, but there is no work, which means that one day, whether you like it or not, you’ll end up like all the other expats, with a nose like a burst beetroot, wondering if it’s okay to have a small sharpener at 10 in the morning. And, as I keep explaining to my daughter, we can’t go to America because if you catch a cold over there, the health system is designed in such a way that you end up without a house. Or dead.

Canada’s full of people pretending to be French, South Africa’s too risky, Russia’s worse and everywhere else is too full of snow, too full of flies or too full of people who want to cut your head off on the internet. So you can dream all you like about upping sticks and moving to a country that doesn’t help itself to half of everything you earn and then spend the money it gets on bus lanes and advertisements about the dangers of salt. But wherever you go you’ll wind up an alcoholic or dead or bored or in a cellar, in an orange jumpsuit, gently wetting yourself on the web. All of these things are worse than being persecuted for eating a sandwich at the wheel.

I see no reason to be miserable. Yes, Britain now is worse than it’s been for decades, but the lunatics who’ve made it so ghastly are on their way out. Soon, they will be back in Hackney with their South African nuclear-free peace polenta. And instead the show will be run by a bloke whose dad has a wallpaper shop and possibly, terrifyingly, a twerp in Belgium whose fruitless game of hunt-the-WMD has netted him £15m on the lecture circuit.

So actually I do see a reason to be miserable. Which is why I think it’s a good idea to tie Peter Mandelson to a van. Such an act would be cruel and barbaric and inhuman. But it would at least cheer everyone up a bit."

Solana will only be revealed and recognized as the leader of the New World Order after a major global disaster (earthquakes in diverse places, millions dead..).

This global disaster will also usher a United world religion to be headquartered in Jerusalem and divide the world into 10 kingdoms.

So Solana will always keep a relatively low profile as the time has not yet come

This is how the new age script is written.

I totally agree with this assessment!


From CNN (11/10/09)

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn will step down from her post early next month, two White House officials confirm to CNN.

Dan Pfeiffer, the current deputy communications director, will takeover the top job, the officials also said.

Dunn, a seasoned political operative, assumed the role earlier this year when then-Communications Director Ellen Moran left the post for a role at the Commerce Department. Dunn made clear she planned to hold the position only temporarily.
Interesting that Javier Solana has accepted a job with Acciona group which is conglomerating through the
wild foundation, all for the sake of sustainable future.
these companies would give solana enough power to destroy the rest of the US. economy.and give him the following of companies who dominate the worlds,railroads,water,energy, food,building materials. mining, and transportation.


In recognition of the signing of the MOU, Armando J. García, Executive Vice President of Technology, Energy and Sustainability for CEMEX, said: “The time is right for creating momentum through collective dialogue and united action of like-minded corporate leaders to help protect wild landscapes, and thereby sustain their ecological services that support a healthy and prosperous society. The corporate world depends upon sustainable natural resources and healthy ecosystems. Collectively we can analyze and adopt best practices to preserve them while meeting our consumer and corporate objectives.”

Vance Martin, president of The WILD Foundation added: “There is a clear business case for sustainable development in industry. Protecting wilderness and nature ensures the maintenance of vital ecosystem services such as climate regulation (through carbon sequestration), freshwater, clean air and biodiversity. Participation in the CCW offers the opportunity to demonstrate corporate leadership and commitment to the conservation of Earth’s natural resources.”

I can see him and these companies taking over or making the transatlantic highway rumored to end in Kansas.

Re:Peter Mandelson makes Javier Solana appear comparatively saintly. Mandelson has a Brazilian boyfriend who was just granted British citizenship. The boyfriend is 20 years younger than Lord Mandelson.

If anyone is wondering why the fact that Mandelson is gay might be significant, all one has to do is to study the history of the Cambridge Spy Scandal.

I don't think Mandelson (a.k.a. "the Prince of Darkness") "came out" voluntarily.

In 2005, Tory MP's condemned the apparent ease with which Peter Mandelson't Brazilian boyfriend, Reinaldo Avila da Silva, won British citizenship while England Zimbabwe-born cricket coach Duncan Fletcher was still being refused.

The word in the streets was that Lord Mandelson was to be married.....and folks were making book on whether or not Lord Mandelson's significant other would be introduced as "Lady Mandelson."

But appears that this was not to be.

Apparently, as of last Spring Peter Mandelson has "struck up a new friendship" with a 32-year-old Italian fashion designer, Marco Coretti, owner of a chic boutique close to the Spanish Steps in Rome.

Apparently Peter Mendelson was introduced to his "new bvest friend" by Reinaldo himself, whilst on holiday in Italy.

Silly Reinaldo.

Apaparently, this "domestic tragedy" led to a historical review of some questionable mortgages acquired by Peter Mandelson.

I am not going to post the link to the article at GOODBYE MAGAZINE because it is just too nasty, but according to the article,

Reinaldo, a ‘language student,’ and presumably a p_ _s-poor one at that, since he has been studying languages since being brought to England more than a decade ago, doubtless on a dodgy visa supplied by Mandelson, was seen moving his possessions out of the “£3.5million house he shares with Mr Mandelson.”

Quite apart from this domestic tragedy, this figure of £3.5 million immediately caught our attention here at Goodbye Towers.

Curiosity piqued, we Googled one of his many previous scandals and discovered that the dodgy and apparently top-secret second mortgage of £373,000 he conned out of cabinet colleague Geoffrey Robinson was for the purchase of a £475,000 house in Notting Hill in 1996.

When he applied for a first mortgage of £150,000 from the Britannia Building Society he “forgot” to tell them that the balance of the consideration wouldn’t be coming from “personal funds” but would in fact be coming from another loan.

It has to be said that even in the age of reckless lending that has just come to an end, even the nobbiest branch manager at the Britannia would have told him to buzz off had they known that the house would be 100% mortgaged.

Even so, the numbers are intriguing.

One imagines that he had to pay all the loans back soon after the story broke, which was in December 1998, since he had made patently false declarations on the loan application, had breached various house rules at Westminster and then lost his job, so went down to aback-bencher’s salary. We imagine that he would have had to sell the Notting Hill house to repay the loans.

Furthermore, he didn’t sell his previous house in Clerkenwell until three months after he bought the Notting Hill house, so was apparently paying two large mortgages from his £40,000 salary.

Quite a feat!

Preconditioning the public for a global currency. CNBC is the source of this interview in which a global currency crisis resulting in a global currency and governance result, is being treated almost as if an inevitability.

Many will notice the mantra of order out of chaos bing used as a conditioner here.

Mandelson lurked on the back benches for less than a year, until October 1999, when he was appointed Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, a post he held in more or less complete obscurity until January 2001, when it was revealed that he had tried to finagle some favours for the criminal Hinduja brothers.

He resigned again, with his familiar refrain of “I did nothing wrong.”

Finally, in July 2004, Blair offered him the plum job as Britain’s member of the European Commission, which he accepted with alacrity despite a show of trying to pretend he gave an r.a. about the people of West Hartlepool.

Given that the cabinet job probably only paid him £70k pa, and given that he doesn’t seem to have acquired much equity in his property portfolio, since he was leveraged 100% on Notting Hill, the gravy train of Europe must have been irresistible, and clearly, it worked, because lo and behold, within 4 years of being on it, the impecunious jerk now has a £3.5 million house!

We imagine that it was this masterly management of his finances that got him the job of the saviour of the British economy, and within minutes of his taking the ermine and his appointment as Trade Minister, he went to see that nice Mr. Deripaska on his yacht in Monaco to try to get more money for himself [Surely you mean for Britain? Ed. No, we don't. Staff reporter.]

As it turns out, that "nice Mr. Deripaska" is Russian billionaire/gangster Oleg Deripaska!


Great shades of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Barney Frank and the executive he referred to as his "spouse"........all so crooked that when they die they will have to be screwed into the ground!!!

Gee, I wonder what the current status is of the fair but jilted Reinaldo's British citizenship?

By Richard Pendlebury and Neil Barnett
Last updated at 1:00 AM on 24th October 2008

Springtime in Brussels and a familiar figure is wreathed in smiles as he announces his latest diplomatic masterstroke.

After three years of talks Peter Mandelson, the EU Trade Commissoner, has secured a bilateral agreement with the tiny Adriatic nation of Montenegro.

'Today's signature is an important milestone,' he cooed. Montenegro's progress towards becoming a reliable world trading partner had been 'remarkable'.

Even so, one imagines that Montenegrin trade prospects rarely dominate small talk at the world's most glamorous restaurants. But they might well have done so at the Moscow dinner table we know Mandelson to have shared with his good friend, Oleg Deripaska, only a few weeks before the Brussels' announcement in April.

Or, indeed, on any of the other occasions when the commissioner has broken bread with the Russian and their mutual friend - and Deripaska's business partner and adviser - the British financier, Nat Rothschild.

Why? Because Deripaska, Russia's wealthiest man, is also the single largest private employer of Montenegro's 680,000 population, responsible for half of the nation's legitimate economic output.

Rothschild - who this week caused a political firestorm by accusing Geroge Osborne, the Tory Shadow Chancellor, of soliciting a £50,000 donation from Deripaska - also has a stake in one of the Russian's projects in Montenegro, as well as other heavy business links with him.

Indeed, this unholy alliance may very well be the key to understanding Rothschild's astonishing betrayal of his old university chum, Mr Osborne.

BUT why has a tiny state like Montenegro assumed such importance to Deripaska and his business partners? It is no secret that the country has a significant and well-established black economy. As one Balkan business analyst said: 'It is the one country in the region that isn't just bedevilled by corruption, it's a kleptocracy.'

Montenegro, which broke from a federal union with Serbia two years ago, has been governed by prime minister Milo Djukanovic since 1991.

Djukanovic is an interesting character. He had long been ' tolerated' by the West for opposing the regime of late Serbian tryrant Slobodan Milosevic. But allegations of links to hugely profitable, mafia-run tobacco smuggling between his country and the EU have seen him repeatedly investigated by Italian prosecutors.

If Djukanovic is the political leviathan of this tiny state, then his friend Deripaska, similarly tainted by alleged mafia-links, is his economic equivalent.

It is said that Djukanovic personally handled the controversial sale of Montenegro's most important state-owned industrial asset - the KAP aluminium firm - to a subsdidiary of Rusal, Deripaska's aluminium concern.

Rusal is the world's largest producer of the metal and benefited greatly from two EU aluminium import tariff cuts which were made while friend Mandelson was trade commissioner.

Some say that KAP was considerably underpriced. There are whispers of kickbacks.
Others resent the way in which Russia has taken such a huge stake in their country.

Since 2001 Russia has commanded first place in the countries investing in Montenegro...

"He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all."

Just musing speculation...

Lord Mandelson denies wanting the EU job Miliband refused
November 11, 2009

Britain was on the verge of coming away empty-handed from the carve-up of Europe’s top jobs yesterday, even as Lord Mandelson’s name entered the fray as an 11th-hour candidate.

The Business Secretary was forced to deny that he had canvassed for the job of EU foreign minister after the prospects of capturing one of the new posts faded for Tony Blair and David Miliband. Last night Fredrik Reinfeldt, the Swedish Prime Minister, said that he expected Europe’s first president to be named after a dinner in Brussels on November 19.

Yesterday President Sarkozy talked up the Belgian Prime Minister as Europe’s first president, seemingly abandoning Mr Blair as his first choice. Mr Miliband is preparing to make a statement ruling himself out of the running for EU foreign minister, the other job created by the Lisbon treaty, according to friends. After the fading of Mr Blair, Paris and Berlin have fallen behind the idea that a Briton should take the job. Mr Miliband was the first choice but, according to Le Monde, Lord Mandelson “discreetly sounded out the Élysée Palace in order to promote his candidacy” for the post.

A spokesman for Lord Mandelson said last night that the Business Secretary had been sounded out about stepping into the breach left by Mr Miliband but denied that he had sought President Sarkozy’s backing: “It is true to say that when he was in Brussels a number of people approached him.”
