"Mr President, the European Summit was less of a success than has been suggested here this morning. The decisions on enlargement, the intervention force and Turkey’s application for EU membership are positive, but the words used to describe the IGC conceal a great lack of political will. The agenda is still open in theory, but there is nothing to suggest that the governments really want fundamental change. On the contrary, so far none of the Commission or Parliament proposals have been followed up. I would very much like the Finnish Presidency to explain why this is so. It is essential for there to be general majority decision making and increased cooperation. The lack of political will to make this unequivocal choice will paralyse the decision-making process as soon as Europe undergoes enlargement. Those who block fundamental reform want to keep Europe small, even though they might claim otherwise."@en1
