Sarko tells us that France wins, Blair says that the UK wins, Merkel says Europe wins. It's an odd game when everybody is a winner.
Odd swan song, no laughs, no jokes, just a slow, if bullish press conference. No referendum, no change, nothing at all.
So why did it go on so long? I am convinced that certain aspects of this will, like a Brown budget only become clear when business has seen and digsted it. Whether this is enough I do not know.
