ABSTRACT
The article reports on the changes in European politics following the retirement of French President Jacques Chirac and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. It is noted that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is committed to reinforcing member-state power and co-operation rather than furthering the federal agenda. On the other hand, French President Nicholas Sarkozy believes in state intervention and his views on labor challenges the current European thinking that social legislation can not be unpicked.
