A French minister said Friday that Jose Manuel Barroso had achieved nothing as European Commission chief, in the latest attack in a bitter war of words between Paris and Brussels.
Asked if she thought Barroso had been a bad choice for the job, Trade Minister Nicole Bricq told LCI television: "I think so. I think he has done nothing during his term."
Harlem Desir, the head of France's ruling Socialist party, said the commission "ran contrary to the European dream," adding that the tiff between France and the body would run "until the next European elections are held."
