Dalli v Pele
There’s an exciting new addition to the blogosphere.
Departed EU commissioner John Dalli appears to have surfaced on the internet in a blog bearing his own name http://www.johndalli.com/ , with only the one, inaugural, post since it was set up six days ago.
In it, he rather grandly quotes Brazilian football legend Pele as saying:
“I’ve come to accept that the life of a frontrunner is a hard one, that he will suffer more injuries than most men and that many of these injuries will not be accidental.”
Maybe it’s true that the qualified accountant and C-list politician shares many, many similarities with the three-time world-cup winner, multiple world-record goal scorer, holder of several athlete and player of the century awards, and decorated UN ambassador.
For the moment, those parallels escape BM, but we look forward to reading all about them on the blog, which remains curiously dormant for now.
