mean-spirited wrangling

[ #6062 ]
Dear Log,

One of the Oblique Strategies is "When is it for?". Sometimes the answer is "not anymore". Or "Better late than never"?

«Had the reunification of Europe happened 10 years ago, a huge positive charge of such idealism and enthusiasm would have flown into the European project from the liberated east. I still hope that a little of it will, from great Europeans like my old friend Bronislaw Geremek. But for the most part the new members, if and when they get in, will have concluded that Europe is really about haggling behind closed doors to pocket a few more million euros for one of your national special interests. That is the lesson we will have taught in 15 years of visionless, mean-spirited wrangling.»

--"The grim wedding: Europe has turned the huge opportunity of enlargement into a bad tempered slog"
