Cameron overestimates Merkel’s vim for EU reform

British prime ministers often remark on the deceptive impotence of the job. They announce a policy and nothing comes of it. They draw up plans, which succumb to events. They wonder where the “real power” lies, usually settling upon some nexus of the media, civil service and high finance. And they assume foreign counterparts to be truly mighty.

As they set off on their fanciful project to remake a union of 28 nations and 500m people, they need a plan that does not start and end with her.
