If Mr Malloch’s accreditation was denied, he would not get access to certain EU buildings, meetings and officials [Image: Reuters].

Mr Malloch’s comments about “taming” another “union”, after his claim that he participated in the fall of the Soviet regime, is one of the elements contributing to EU leaders’ vitriol about Donald Trump.

It isn’t just Herr Drumpf causing all the problems, you see.

Some of his lieutenants need to learn to think before speaking; otherwise the only union that will suffer any “taming” will be the States.

European Parliament leaders have condemned US President Donald Trump’s potential choice as envoy to the EU.

Businessman Ted Malloch is believed to be the favourite for the role.

In a letter, the leaders of the main parliamentary groups say he supports the dissolution of the EU and that his views reveal “outrageous malevolence”.

One of the leaders separately said that Mr Malloch, who has previously compared the bloc to the former Soviet Union, should be declared “persona non grata”.

In an interview with the BBC last month, Mr Malloch said: “I had in a previous career a diplomatic post where I helped bring down the Soviet Union. So maybe there’s another union that needs a little taming.”
