#EU If David Cameron cannot even block an “old guard” federalist as commission chief, what chance does he stand of clawing back significant powers from Brussels? After the P.M’s massive “FAIL”,  look out for face-saving EU consolation prizes, such as EU leaders allowing the UK a few business-friendly policies and a maybe a key commission post to oversee reforms such as the internal market portfolio. No doubt, DC’s spinmeisters are already hovering over their keyboards, ready to rewrite this latest EU cock-up as a great tactical victory.
