On the left is Herman Van Rompuy the new President of the EU and the right, puckering up, is Baroness Ashton, Europe's first 'foreign secretary'.
Herman Van Rompuy is the Belgian prime minister who favours the introduction of EU-wide taxes and the abolition of national flags and anthems. He had been hot favourite to win the job since Tony Blair's bid crumbled in recent days.
Lady Ashton, who only eight years ago was head of Hertfordshire Health Authority, has never been elected in her life, yet she now holds one of the world's most powerful positions. She will also be in charge of thousands of staff and have the run of a grace-and-favour home in Brussels.
Lady Ashton helped steer the Lisbon Treaty, which has created her new job, through Parliament without a referendum as Labour leader in the House of Lords. Since then she has had an unimpressive spell as EU trade commissioner.
Mr Brown last night welcomed Lady Ashton's appointment as High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy. The Prime Minister said she would also hold the vice-presidency of the European Commission.
"It gives Britain a powerful voice both within the council and the commission," he said. "It will ensure that Britain's voice is very loud and clear."
Lady Ashton will head up a 5,000 strong EU diplomatic service with 120 embassies around the globe and have a say in the allocation of the bloc's £6.5 billion foreign aid budget.
There we have it. It's all over including the shouting. Below you can see the satisfied looks from the main designers of the whole EU charade.
"Didn't we do well?"
