Italy's controversial European Commission nominee, Rocco Buttiglione, has said he is standing down as commissioner-designate. "I am ready to stand aside to smooth the way for (the) commission," he said. Nice to see that Italy managed to show resistance for at least a few days - nothing new there!

There is something very rotten in Euroland when a man who espouses Christian values has to "stand down" in order for the EU to go forward.
