The recent EU summit finished without any agreement on Britain's rebate, farm subsidies and future EU spending or direction. At the conclusion of the meeting both factions headed by Blair and Chirac held press conferences where each side blamed the other for the impasse. Some less than diplomatic language was used with Chirac accusing the British position as being "tragic" and "pathetic" whilst the British accused the French of being "bizarre". So who do you think is right in this latest dustup between these ancient foes? Is this a deep crisis for the EU as stated by the Luxembourg premier or is it simply a smokescreen to deflect attention away from the failed constitution and the recent 'No' votes in France and the Netherlands?
