A question for Peter Oborne

You claim:

I remember that within months of [Tony Blair's] winning the 1997 General Election, his aides were confiding that his long-term aim was the then non-existent post of European President.

You have never liked Blair, you have never liked the EU and you have always had a good eye for a scoop that your like-minded readers could enjoy getting outraged by.

So, did you report this story back in 1997?

More to the point, the post of "President" (which would be better translated as "Chairman") wasn't even proposed until Giscard's Convention on the EU Constitution in 2003, so the whole story is total fiction. Oborne is not just foolish, but a liar too.
