Neelie Who?

Nosemonkey at Europhobia sums up the controversy over the nomination of Neelie Kroes to the European Commission and looks at the underlying problems in how the Commission is put together and confirmed....so that I don't have to. Thanks, Nosemonkey!

Oddly, "the Parliament can only approve or vote down the entire commission and cannot pick out individual candidates for veto." This could make for tough work for the new Commission president, Jos´┐Ż Manuel Barroso. Not only has he had no say in who his subordinates are (they are nominated by individual member states and he has to work with what he's got), but he's also been lumbered with some dodgy-sounding ones.

Something needs to be re-thought, indeed. Sounds like a job for Super-Paul!
