Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I did indeed, but in this case I was making a more general point about the overall loss of desire for "ever closer union." Maybe it was generational change, maybe it was the focus on enlargement (which as we know the Brits did see, rightly or wrongly, as a distraction from deepening tendencies), maybe it was having a fundamentally eurosceptical French president (Chirac), maybe it was the cost and change in perspective(s) from  Germany' reunification it was the scandinavians and the more utilitarian view of the EU, or (more likely) a combination of all that.
