Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair released his memoirs in late 2010 after a failed attempt to become E. U. President. Mr. Blair received two phone calls from the German Chancellor and informed the British Prime Minister “his chances of becoming the first European President under the new Constitution were over.”
He had believed he was the front runner for the position having become a Roman Catholic earlier in the year, which seems to be a pre-requisite for the job. A British European President was unacceptable to the German/Vatican leadership of Europe. It is important to note the ‘appointment’ of the EU President was decided behind closed doors without a vote of the 500 million population of the 27 nation European Union.
Placing a German in the Presidential position would have raised concerns over German dominance, already voiced in Britain. Submission to Vatican influence in European politics will produce a final -short lived- resurrection of a modern day ‘Roman Empire’ now evolving in Europe. This has been the main effort of the Vatican over the past 50 years. See ‘World Peace: How Will It Come‘ and ‘The Mark and 666‘ on Page 2 of the America And Britain’s Future Free Library.
