(THE SUN) — TONY Blair is set to be made the first President of Europe in weeks, The Sun can reveal.
He will be nominated by EU leaders in Brussels if, as expected, Ireland backs the hated Lisbon Treaty in tomorrow’s referendum.
A senior Government source said: “If we get a ‘Yes’ vote it will all move very, very quickly. Tony could be named by the end of October.”
The leaders of the EU’s 27 nations, not the voters, will choose the president.
