But... do we need one?

A salary of around € 270,000, a chauffeured car, a housing allowance and a personal staff of around 20. This is some of the stuff taxpayers will have to pay for the new EU President. To begin with.

"However the commission is not expected to mention the EU president's salary in its first budget draft for fear of upsetting the current ratification process of the EU treaty - particularly in Ireland which is to have a referendum" according to the EU Observer.
