NotesNews - Le Monde had it in a nutshell. The French newspaper noted that Tony Blair had created a great splash at the congress of European socialist parties in Milan, but that nobody was in any hurry to adopt his agenda of Anglo-Saxon market reforms. It concluded with Galliic finality that the British experience is 'hardly exportable under present European conditions'. In this, Le Monde accurately reflects the sentiment of the European political elites. The Prime Minister is admired for his success and envied for his majority, but he faces a Sisyphean task in persuading the EU to undertake, in his words 'structural policies of economic reform.' At the core of Mr. Blair's speech was a call for 'dialogue with our democratic friends in the USA.' [Editorial, The Daily Telegraph, 4 March 1999]
