Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is Zapatero and Prodi, both pro-EU and on the rise in "large" member states. The real problem is the French paralysis and there's nothing that can be done about that until 2007. The July-December EU presidency will be the first one that will be able to do anything productive, assuming a genuine pro-EU president takes over in France, not someone that Jerome would describe as "paying lip service to th European ideal".

If you have Spain, France, Italy and Germany, you can probably linp along without the UK and Poland.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
