– im übertragenen Sinne.’ (This and subsequent translations are by the author.) 4 ‘Spezialgewehr, Zielfernrohr – 150m Distanz – Kopfschuss für Kennedy … Das ist perfekt organisiert, zielbewußt.’ 5 Von Schnitzler started his television career on the GDR news programme ­Aktuelle Kamera (Current Camera), for which he once critically commented on the West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer by using and interpreting quotations taken from one of Adenauer’s speeches.

and German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, they insisted that the ENA should be their host. Many of these German students later went to work in Brussels. In order to become European bureaucrats they had to broaden their training, and knowledge of the French language and administration helped them get good posts in Brussels. De Gaulle's and Adenauer's motive for keeping the Germans and French together was that the elites of the two largest European states should partly be trained together. The German students' successful lobby resulted in an implicit division of labour

expenditures of persons or organisations who pay for newspaper advertisements supportive of a particular party, or who provide facilities such as meeting rooms or the use of vehicles to aid the campaign. A more difficult area is the aid provided by party-related foundations, such as the Friedrich-Ebert, Konrad Adenauer, Hanns-Seidl and Friedrich Naumann Stiftungen. In formal and legal terms, they have to avoid providing direct aid to the parties. In fact, it is difficult to differentiate some of their activities (such as conducting survey research) from activities which are

Although it was revolutionary in substance, the pères de l’Europe drew on the established constitutional rules of constituted power to found the European Communities in the 1950s. From a certain perspective, this is clearly beneficial; the EU, as the product of treaties between existing nation-states, sidesteps the problems of the democratic paradox that confronted the early
