In consequence, by the end of 1954 the organisational and institutional landscape was beginning to resemble a breaker’s yard: there were far more wrecks than going concerns. In particular, it was far from clear at the time whether the ‘sectoral approach’ could really be proclaimed a great success, as cartels and price fixing rapidly entrenched themselves and as Monnet’s stratagems 14 Birth, childhood and adolescence seemed marginalised (Gillingham 1991: esp. ) 2006: 72–6): and he himself resigned from the presidency of the High Authority.
In general, the lawyers are the least dissatisfied with the way things have gone. They can point to the degree of independence achieved by the Court; to its early and firm assertion of the concepts of primacy and direct effect; to the fact that its judgments are usually enforced, its rulings usually effective – although arguably not always consistent. Of course they have also worried about tendencies to flout the Court’s rulings or to bypass it and about the law’s delays. But the EC/U is a highly legal world, an aspect that cannot be emphasised too strongly.
It is important to do this for another reason. Already, before 1968, certain events had occurred that were to cast long shadows before them in terms of the development of the EC. One event, familiar from most sketches of the EC, was of course the ‘crisis’ of 1965–6, in which France, angered at the boldness of certain Commission proposals, absented itself from meetings of the Council of Ministers for a period of some 7 months (the so-called ‘policy of the empty chair’). Another event, less well known but in its own way just as revealing, had happened even earlier: the early discussions on the development of a so-called European political union; the ‘Fouchet–Cattani’ negotiations which began in 1959, dragged on in some disagreement and acrimony in 1960–1 and ran into the sand during 1962.
