Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You forgot Aznar.

Maybe we just have to admit that we got used to a decade of strong EU construction under Gonzalez, Mitterrand and Kohl, with Delors in the Commission, and that it's natural that a period of stasis follows. Europe is not dying, it's just taking a necessary rest.

DoDo does rightly point out that the political cycle does not favour further integration.

You forgot Aznar.

No more in office, nor do I expect him back anytime soon. But I should have mentioned Barroso, you make my argument above much better than I could.

Maybe not back in office, but he might take the reins of the PP back from Rajoy. It's a long time until 2008.
