Still naively hoping to reach an accord with Iran over its nuclear weapons development program, the P5+1 (Britain, France, Germany, United States, Russia and China) will soon be holding a new round of talks with Tehran, again spearheaded by Catherine Ashton, the EU's nincompoop foreign policy head.
Ashton? A former chairwoman of the Health Authority in Hertfordshire, she has never held elected office. Ashton has a BSc degree in sociology and has a life-sized Dalek (a fictional race of extraterrestrial mutants from the British science fiction television series "Doctor Who") in her sitting room.
Quite apart from what decorates her sitting room, what might be hiding in her closet? Questions have arisen over her role as national treasurer in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (no mention of this position in her EU profile), which was suspected of having received funding from the Soviet Union.
Ashton is not qualifed to undertake this very sensitive job? Surely you jest! Just have a look at the video of Ashton, filmed on her way to a meeting with Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic on his first official visit to Brussels.
Yes, it would all be very funny were it not for the fact that Obama has entrusted the fate of the world in the hands of this bovine naif.
