One of the enduring mantras of the "soft" Europhiles (aka Eurosceptics) is that "Europe is going our way", towards a more liberal, market orientated structure. And no more so was that supposed to be true than with so-called free-marketeer Nicolas Sarkozy, the new French president.

Thus, it is instructive – if not entirely unexpected - to see Sazkozy immediately reach for the subsidy pot, when faced with rebellious fishermen complaining about rising fuel costs.

Nice move by Sarko, floats a VAT moratorium on fuel a gets a great big "Pas sur votre Nellie", meanwhile the incoming tide of oil production sweeps away the sandcastles of the futures market so the price drops. Sarko can then saunter away as cool as some cucumbers having probably negotiated some quid pro quos. The guy is a mountebank!

The EU's authority crumbles when it comes up against national self interest and determination.
