All is not well in the Franco-German marriage. It is clear that if Paris and Bonn fall out, Europe's wheels stop turning. Chancellor Schroder should demonstrate his commitment to his neighbours. Talking about a menage a trois with the UK, without considering whether the Brits would sign up to such an agreement, was foolish. Dasa boss Manfred Bischoff could have warned Schroder of the perils of ignoring the French. He tried to form an alliance with BAe, without talking to the French, only to see the deal of the century slip from his grasp as BAe went off with Marconi. The British would have felt more comfortable if the Germans and the French had been side by side, not hinting at some future 'transatlantic alternative'. Germany's commitment to France must remain deep and strong.
