In complete contrast, 2005 was a year of setbacks and reappraisals. Everything appeared to be under control at the start of the year, when the highly experienced Prime Minister of Luxembourg, Jean-Claude Juncker, began his presidency by addressing three major issues:
amending the Stability and Growth Pact, reviewing the Lisbon strategy and seeking a political agreement on the financial perspectives for 2007-2013. All three of these topics were supposed to build on the headway made in 2004 but were thrown off course by current events. Two
national referendums, in late May (France) and early June (Netherlands), on the draft European constitutional Treaty disrupted discussion and sent an icy blast through the European edifice, slamming doors and windows behind it.
