Tony Blair is warming to the idea of becoming president of Europe, according to friends, even though he would have to give up his clutch of lucrative business appointments.
Mr Blair's allies have previously played down the prospect of the former prime minister taking the new £200,000-a-year post of president of the European Council created under the new EU treaty now going through Parliament. But friends now describeMr Blair as open-minded and are hinting he would accept the job if EU leaders asked him to do it.
