Good Intensive Care

Austria's presidency has been praised by the Finns:

Speaking in Vienna on Monday, Finland's President Halonen praised Austria for its success in keeping the EU constitution alive during its chairmanship of the EU presidency.
On life support of course. It would have been kinder to pull the plug.

All very well, but why was Austria chairing the EU presidency?

Is this the official title of the President of the EU because it rotates and I've missed something here?

I think thats because the previous and coming countries share the task as a triumvirate, where the current holder is the first among equals.

It could just be a dumb comment though.

Keep arresting and jailing holocaust deniers. This will teach the sheeples not to question Austrias state version of history and politics. By the way, I was just in Austria and make the observation that I spent 10% or so of my time waiting for government toll booths or idling at checkpoints. The EU has no problem heaving taxes and penalties on private companies for Kyoto but I would put money they never will reduce their own bureaucracy to streamline traffic and reduce greenhouse gas emmissions.
