Someone likes him

While the rest of the world continues to be underwhelmed by the appointment of Herman Van Rompuy as the new EU President of the European Council, it would appear that he has his fans in Japan, as the writer of haiku - a form of Japanese poetry.

Kaoru Fujimoto, an official of the Haiku International Association says:

"We feel very proud that the first EU president ever elected loves haiku,"

Not sure about the elected part. The article continues:

Van Rompuy, with his thinning grey hair and spectacles, comes across as a rather reserved intellectual.

Hmm reminds me of someone else
