What do you think about the socialist leaders who support Mr Barroso, like the British Prime Minister Brown or the Spanish, Mr Zapatero?Sounds like a little conflict in the PES family!
I speak in the name of the PES. Not in the name of national governments. One thing is sure: the PES will not support Mr Barroso. He is the candidate of the European People's Party (EPP). He will never represent the opinions of the socialist family, even though some social-democratic governments are supporting him, for national reasons. The last word will be for the [European] Parliament after the elections.
Update (30 March): EUobserver has taken up the story.
