What's French for schadenfreude?

Wow.
Britain may well become the economic saviour of euroland if it succeeds in injecting some (much needed) ol' fashioned anglo-saxon style free market-ism into the sterile economies of the mainland.
As for Chirac, may History judge him fairly (which in itself is enough of an indictment)

"Angela Merkel, favourite to replace Gerhard Schröder in September, said that it was unreasonable to expect Britain to surrender its rebate if France would not cut farm subsidies."

Heh, fantastic.

It's about time Germany stop doing the bidding of the French.

Can't wait for Merkel to replace Schroder in the Fall. I don't want to jinx her, and I have remarkable little faith in the Europeans, but it is a pretty good bet that Schroder is done.

"JACQUES CHIRAC suffered a double blow as the EU summit opened last night...."

Anything perceived as bad for Chirac and the French is good news in my book.

Schröder is Chirac's poodle.

Heh. I'll bet PM Blair is loving this.

Well, Merkel's forthright comments in the Bundestag are more than momentous. It could be the beginning of a whole realignment of the paymaster and powerhouse of Europe. As Germany goes, so goes Europe. We can not leave Europe as the stage prop for the French and hope to wage a war against terrorism or even conduct a coherent international policy.

This breaking away of Germany from France is what I was hoping for here:

That sound you heard was not the earthquake in Southern California, but the political power in Europe shifting.

Next step: Jacques Chirac telling Netherlands and Sweden that they "are not well brought up," and are not good Europeans and "missed a good opportunity to shut up".
