The EU’s odd couple

intransigence and deception, he managed to kill off what was feared to be a rival British ‘power-base’ that could inconvenience plans for a federal Europe. 27 Erhard was very much a Cassandra in his doubts about the EU. In the United States, there was cross-party and high-level elite backing for the project. Britain was too absorbed with managing imperial retreat and unfavourable economic trends at home to be able to be a coherent partner and Erhard had a boss who was a strong enthusiast.

hold. ‘Never again war’ became the rallying cry for a disparate coalition of intellectuals, educators, unionists, politicians, and protestant clergy. On the centre right, the conclusion was different. ‘Never again alone’ was the precept for Germany’s democratisation, rehabilitation, and reconstruction – a precept that guided and informed the policy of the first post-war German government, headed by the Conservative Konrad Adenauer. Adenauer was convinced that the roots of the German disaster were to be found in the spiritual and strategic oscillation between East and

appointment of Adolf Hitler as chancellor in 1933, no fewer than three chancellors (Heinrich Brüning; Franz von Papen; Kurt von Schleicher) were appointed, each ruling by use of presidential emergency powers. In all, a total of sixteen chancellors (including Hitler) were appointed in the fifteen years from 1918 to 1933: a period briefer than the term in office as chancellor of Helmut Kohl (sixteen years), and only one year longer than the chancellorship of Konrad Adenauer (fourteen years). Because of this fatal flaw in the constitutional arrangements of the Weimar

delegation, which included Konrad Adenauer, attended the Hague Conference, which paved the way for the creation of the Council of Europe in May 1949. The Federal Republic became an associate member of the Council of Europe in 1950, and a full member in 1951. However, it was during the chancellorship of Konrad Adenauer (1949–63) that the Federal Republic deliberately and, on the part of the governing Christian Democrats at least, energetically became involved in the process of European integration. In some respects, this was part of a wider process of tying the Federal

days’ time. At about the same time, a handwritten letter describing the proposal was handed to the German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer. Although Adenauer had no forewarning, he saw that it resolved a number of problems between France and West Germany, and so he immediately answered: ‘I approve wholeheartedly.’ Everyone was now on board. At 4 p.m. on 9 May, in the gilded Salon de l’Horloge at Quai d’Orsay, Schuman announced ‘his’ plan to create a European Coal and Steel Community. The press conference attracted around 200 journalists, who heard the minister promise

social democratic welfare state, the liberal democratic and the conservative corporatist. The UK was put in the liberal democratic camp, with France and Germany in the conservative corporatist. For our purposes, analysing differences, it is important to look at the differences between France and Germany as well as the similarities. Germany There is no doubt that Germany’s pension, unemployment benefit and healthcare systems are generous by world standards. While the rhetoric of the critics may be exaggerated, since Konrad Adenauer’s chancellorship, German citizens have

a more critical view to be formed of the period as a whole, of the bilateral contacts between Britain and Germany across a wide spectrum of foreign policy issues, and of the actions and motivations of the principals involved. There can be little doubt that by the time the Labour government took office in October 1964, relations between Britain and Germany had recovered after the difficult situation caused by the ill feeling between Harold Macmillan and Konrad Adenauer. There were, after all, good reasons why a sound relationship was in the interest of both
