EU top spud Barroso has been at it again, meeting the dissatisfied unwashed.
It didn’t go so well in October last year, when he was wheeled out to meet some actual Belgians. That rencontre resulted in some egg chucking from protesters and one of the most masterful dismissive waves performed by an ungruntled local.
At a speech at Humbolt University in Berlin today, he was again interrupted by shouty students blurting the cause for ‘solidarity’ as he crowed about how the PIGS and other countries were now out of the economic mire.
His effort to grin and bear it is tragi-comic. The debate chairman’s polite plea of “if you could just be quiet and listen” is teutonicomic.
