Another hack point

The South-East European Research Centre in Thessaloniki has just appointed me to their Advisory Board. This is on the basis of two evenings’ brainstorming over pints of Guinness in Sean O’Casey’s round the corner from my office with one of their senior staff. Provided they don’t expect me to do anything much, that seems reasonable.

Meanwhile the European Commission thing trundles along – I see Charlie McCreevy from Ireland likely to get an economic portfolio, similarly Peter Mandelson (who I have always assumed will be the next British Commissioner) so neither likely to bother me much. I hope Potočnik gets the Balkans/wider Europe portfolio. But it’s all in the hands of Mr Barroso, and the 24 other governments besides Portugal…
