Over to EU

So Baroness Ashton of Upholland, the current Leader of the Lords, is to replace Peter Mandelson as the UK's EU Commissioner, apparently as a prize for helping to force the Lisbon Treaty through Parliament.

Needless to say, Baroness Ashton is firmly in the "let's-keep-saying-we-respect-the-Irish-no-vote-but-do-the-exact-opposite" camp.

But could she now be fulfilling a lifetime ambition? Earlier this year she told her peers:

"My Lords, I love Europe, but I never had the opportunity to be an MEP so I did not have the chance to go native."

" But you can bet if I had been an MEP I would have drowned in the gravy!"
