Margot Wallstrom for EU President!

One of those interesting little questions is whether Margot actually wants to be EU President (or actually, President of the European Commission).

She\’s got an article in The Guardian today, full of the normal platitudes. However, a little pointer:

A declaration faces the unfortunate possibility of being merely ink on paper unless people from every level, in governmental bodies and civil society organisations, become advocates for the tangible steps needed to elicit such change. Specifically, resolution 1325 calls upon member states to:

… ensure increased representation of women at all decision-making levels in national, regional and international institutions and mechanisms for the prevention, management, and resolution of conflict.

Yet, women remain under-represented in precisely these fields.

Yup, she\’s running.

  1. How typical that she should play the ‘i is a wimmin’ card. The EU is a laughable institution and it is shameful to be a part of it.
