Charlie’s tuned in

The_eagles Since becoming internal market commissioner at the EC, Charlie McCreevy has been working darned hard. And finally his efforts are paying off, as TS is starting to like him. Surely the ultimate honour for any eurocrat.

After all, who could fail to warm to a man who uses classic lines from country rock anthems in his battle against US administrative dogma.

Speaking ahead of a trip to America, which will include talks with the SEC over the difficulty companies face when trying to deregister from the regulator, he compared the Yanks’ capital market to The Eagle’s famous Hotel California.

The reason? ‘You can check in any time you like, but you can never leave,’ said McCreevy.

Charlie, TS salutes you.
