As the previous blog said, there seems to be a consensus right-wing candidate for the Presidency. It is all a little unofficial, with most of the information coming from Portuguese news agencies.
In the meantime Margot Wallström, the Swedish Commissioner for the Environment, has bemoaned the fact that there were no women candidates and one wag has suggested that Lady Thatcher should take over. Even she would be unable to sort out this mess.
The idea of an Atlanticist as a President is likely to annoy the French and the Germans, so negotiations should be quite lively.
