Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Chirac...that wasn't a mistake, that was a difference of opinion. And, btw, the french right via Chirac proved superior to the anglo left (Blair, Clinton et al)

Mitterand...Europe could do far worse than Mitterand, especially what he first tried (but what he proved was that in an integrated europe you can't do real socialism unless all of europe does. Lesson learned...and Prodi and Delors learned it well.)

Giscard? Again, difference of opinion, compared to the Thatcher the english came up with though...not the worst.

Pompidou? At least a famous wife, in many regards.... De Gaulle? At least he got english membership in the eec correctly. We're still paying the price for ignoring his veto.

How far am I supposed to go back?
