Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or perhaps it was a good idea inadequately implemented, and the problem now is that the political environment has now changed so much in a bad way that demonstrable problems cannot be fixed any longer. A resurgent German nationalism seems to have paralysed the EU.  But if there were a coherent alternative majority on the Council, Germany could be outvoted.  So perhaps the spinelessness of the rest of Europe is as much to blame.
