Transparency vs. Conspiracy

Conspiracy theorists, rejoice: one of the leading candidates for President of the European Council, Belgian Prime Minister Herman van Rompuy, has reportedly given a speech to the arcane Bilderberg Group.

This purely unofficial appearance of Mr. Van Rompuy will also fuel criticism from Eastern European Member states that have persistently attacked the intransparent nomination process for new EU posts created under the Treaty of Lisbon.

  1. Sadly, the NYT has taken a “sore loser” stance on Van Rompuy’s selection, as has Gordon Brown–even downplaying the position to one of mere ceremony (see http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/11/20/europe-has-a-president-lets-hear-from-the-sore-losers/)
