I appear inadvertently to have created a new monster.
Last week I pundered idly on the Twitters as to whether incoming European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker had nominated a "Chef de Drinks Cabinet."
In no time a new Twitter account held by someone calling themselves Martini Seltzermayr appeared, staking a claim to the role.
The prankster - clearly modeled on Juncker's actual chief of staff Martin Selmayr - has showed a willingness to sustain the joke.
So in their honour, and looking forward to someone else giving the Brussels beltway a ribbing in the coming years, I done a photo montage, depicting Martini Seltzermayr preparing for his morning briefing with the new commission president:
If you're passing by the Twitters, do follow @mseltzermayer, won't you?
