Catherine Ashton's spokesman Lutz Güllner abandons ship as he sees no future with her in the EU, the first home run to safety













Dear All

Having taken up the post as the EU's new foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has proved such a liability that even her own people want away from her.

The SS Ashton has ripped its keel out in foreign shores, the boiler has exploded, fire broke out and the crew has abandoned ship.

Lutz Güllner, her spokesman since she took up the EU post has decided to run.

Lutz said;

"I had to consider my professional future and decided that it was elsewhere.”

Yes, it is as damning as that, he recognises that there is no future under Ashton’s tenure.

And associated guilt will kill your career quicker in the EU than Ebola.

Ashton is a carrier of the most virulent virus going… sheer incompetence.

She is like Gordon Brown each week trying to reinvent herself; this week it was the grand announcement on the 7,000-strong foreign service.

Then Lutz ran off to the European Commission's trade department like a rat out of a drain pipe screaming that serving under Ashton had been "a very tough job".

Better a lifetime as cattle than 5 minutes as a sitting duck with all the big guns pointed at Ashton, people usually get hit in the crossfire.

The departure of Lutz is a clear signal that Ashton whose experience is one-year tenure as EU Trade Commissioner is on her way out.

She can limp on but no one wants her, the French want her out and her head on a spike.

Expect a saga similar to the great escape as others climb the fences, dig tunnels, disguise themselves as French Onion sellers to try and save their careers.

It seems that Lutz Güllner has made the first home run!

This is not a time for amateurs, looks like that's exactly what we've got - woefully inexperienced and at best inadequate members of Labour!

Dear CrazyDaisy

13 years of Labour has resulted in complete incompetence being seen as a norm.

She should step down and leave.

Out of her depth, quangocrat not a politician.

Job like that is all about being seen, pressing the flesh and flying the flag.

Yours sincerely

Even if it is not the important post that it was billed as being by the Eurosceptics, who thought that this woman would be running every moment of our lives from now on, the job is, if nothing else, very highly paid and carries many privileges.

She has no experience, not proven track record and one can only scratch one’s head in wonderment at her ever being appointed to it. Given that she was appointed by Brown, because that is effectively what happened, it is easy to imagine a catastrophic lack of judgement, but what has happened to the woman’s own sense of decency. Did she not think... “Me? Why me? I can’t possibly do this job. Chris Patten, Ming Campbell, Douglas Hurd, Hilary Benn even, maybe, but me.... never. No. I decline. I owe it to the EU and to myself to stand aside and let a qualified person do the job.”

Nope... of course she didn’t. She’s Tor... sorry New Labour. Me me me me me me me.

Well fine Ashton you sill bitch. Go down in history as a tube!
