It's typical. You wait ten years for an event like today and what happens? You get stuck in Brussels. Would you like to know how much coverage there's been here in the 'capital' of the EU. Nada. Zilch. I've zapped my remote through every non-English TV channel to find any mention of Blair's departure and haven't found even a whisper.
So this morning I asked a few people at the event I was at - Commission types, MEPs, that sort - what they thought about today. And they were, without exception, uninterested.
