The European Commission: Administration or Government?

IF THE RECENT EVENTS in the European Community have taught us anything, it is that it is not quite perfect. For all the good work it has done since 1957, it continues to polarise opinion, generate as much fear and dislike as it does admiration, and shoot itself in both feet just when it looks as if it might be able to stand on them.
