Europe watchers got no clues about the political future of the Union from Sunday's elections. Conservative incumbents in Germany and Italy survived a weekend of anti-establishment voting for seats in the 12-country European Union Assembly. But Socialists now dominate the parliament that will control the E.U.s $77 billion budget. One lingering irony, says TIME Brussels correspondent Jay Branegan, is that most of those Socialists came from Britain, which has a conservative government. Among the winners: from France, Charles DeGaulle's grandson and namesake.
