NotesNews - In two weeks Germany will stage the EU's make-or-break summit, the one that is supposed to take a scythe to agricultural subsidies and sort out which country gets a rebate from whom. Germany will have to have a finance minister at these crucial negotiations, because the last incumbent walked out in a huff on Thursday night. Such a state of affairs might, in normal circumstances, be regarded as little short of a calamity. But since Oskar Lafontaine - aka 'The most Dangerous Man in Europe' - fled into the hills of the Saarland, the entire continent has been in the grip of an epidemic of optimism. [Imre Karacs, The Sunday Independent on Sunday 14 March 1999]
