Regarding ‘Dutch PM said to be eyeing EU president job‘:

Rumours of all kind exist in this world. We cannot fight them, we can only check reality.

Who is the Jan Peter Balkenende, and why are his ambitions newsworthy?

Well, the answer is simple: he is competent, efficient and effective, and besides all that, a modest and sympathetic person.

If EU citizens were free to choose, then I think Balkenende would be an excellent president for the EU and the world.

  1. Hello Europe,

    Before you all start running after JP Balkenende, please beware of his constant lying about almost everything!!!
