The EU Observer has an interesting article today which details their progress towards Lisbon ratification, with a focus on the very powerful foreign policy position which will be created, a position which will rival the EU President in terms of international clout. Interestingly, this foreign policy head will also serve as vice-president of the EU commission:
"Future EU foreign policy dependent on personal chemistry"
On October 27 the Czech Republic's courts will determine their status regarding the Lisbon Treaty. If they agree to this, as expected, then these positions within the EU will be selected quickly. It will be fascinating to see who gains these two powerful positions, not only within the EU, but for the world.
The EU is on the move - just as we would have predicted.
