Blair to join Catholic Church "in weeks"

by Rhiannon Edward, for The Scotsman (from this link)

Fri 9 Nov 2007

Tony Blair, the former prime minister, is set to become a Roman Catholic within weeks, it emerged yesterday.

Mr. Blair, currently an Anglican, is expected to be received into the church in a mass at the private chapel of Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, the Archbishop of Westminster.

His wife, Cherie, and four children are Catholics and the family have worshipped together for years.

In one of his final acts as premier, Mr. Blair met Pope Benedict and was believed to have told him of his determination to leave the Church of England.

The move was disclosed by the Catholic weekly The Tablet, which said the service would be held this month.

Mr. Blair's spokesman did not deny the story, but said: "This is the same old speculation."

However, a friend said it was "not without substance".

His move will divide Catholics.

As an MP Mr Blair voted for abortion at up to 24 weeks.

All four of the Blair children were baptised as Catholics and the whole family used to attend mass at St Joan of Arc Church in Islington, north London.

After becoming prime minister in 1997, he was told to stop taking Holy Communion by the late Cardinal Hume, then leader of Catholics in England and Wales.

He continued to attend private masses with Fr Michael Seed, a Westminster priest.

Tony Blair could be EU President

by Toby Helm and Bruno Waterfield in Lisbon (from this link)

Tony Blair has been placed in the frame to become the first permanent President of the EU after France launched a campaign to install him in the powerful new Brussels job.

Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President, touted the former Prime Minister as his preferred candidate after Gordon Brown and fellow leaders agreed the EU Reform Treaty, which establishes the new post from January 2009.

“I saw Tony Blair the night before last,” said Mr Sarkozy, referring to a dinner between the two men in Paris where the idea was discussed.

“He is a remarkable man, the most European of all the British. I do not know what his intentions are but that one could think of him as a possibility would be quite a smart move.”

A spokesman for Mr Blair has refused to rule out the move, saying only that he was “focused on his current role” as an international envoy to the Middle East.

The job, which could be done part-time, would involve Mr Blair coordinating EU policy and brokering agreements between leaders of the 27 member states.

It is expected to carry a salary and perks package of at least £200,000 a year.

While Downing Street appeared cautious, hinting Mr Blair might not be the choice of many EU leaders because of the Iraq war, Mr Brown gave his initial backing.

However, he said it was too early to get involved in such discussions, because the Reform Treaty had not yet passed into law.

The job, which would run for a two and half year term and is renewable once, has been established to replace the existing system of rotating six-month presidencies between member states.

Heads of government will choose the President by a majority vote.

Mr Sarkozy suggested Jean-Claude Juncker, the long-serving Prime Minister of Luxembourg, as an alternative to Mr Blair.

The new EU Treaty also establishes a new EU foreign policy chief and a European diplomatic service. However Mr Brown again rejected calls for a referendum.
