Actually the person in question is a 'he', not a 'she'.
My thanks to Ian Parker-Joseph for bring this article to my attention via Twitter. Jonathan Fryer writes in Diplomat on the appointment of Jonathan Scheele as the EU UK Representative, a position held since August.
One initial criticism of Fryer's journalism is:
"Surprisingly, given the Euro-sceptic murmurings of William Hague........"
Accepting that age brings the onset of difficulty with hearing, any 'murmurings' by Hague were most definitely 'sotto voce' and were beneath the hearing of this blog! In any event Hague has sold his soul to the Devil in return for ministerial position. Yet again I digress.......
Anyway, back to Jonathan Scheele. He hopes that it will be possible to build a relationship with the media editors so that they check any EU story with him first and not afterwards. That is just eurocratspeak meaning he would like the opportunity of spinning the story in the most favourable light for the EU.
He feels his biggest problem though is England:
"One of the biggest aspects of that challenge will be how to deal with England,’ he says. ‘The separate representations in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast do a great job........"
Not too sure about Belfast, but given the opportunity both Edinburgh and Cardiff would have their heads even further up the EU's rear end if they could. As I say do note the comment that the challenge will be how to deal with England. Scheele should not worry too much as whilst he has 'placemen' in the guise of Cameron, Clegg and Hague his 'England' problem is virtually negated.
It is worth highlighting the fact, disclosed in the article that there will be:
"....the local headquarters of the European Parliament, currently only a short walk away on Queen Anne’s Gate."
Now WTF would the European Parliament require 'local headquarters' in Britain, were it not to 'take over' from Westminster - something some of us believe has already happened!
When will the British public wake up to the fact that their country is being taken away from them and that that 'take over' is almost complete?
