Another beneficial crisis

Before you can say "beneficial crisis" it has been floated that it would be best if the EU was to control all of Europe's energy supplies so as to avoid any more blackouts like the one on Saturday.
"My first impression is that there is a contradiction between having European networks but not having a central European authority. It is somewhat absurd," Mr Prodi said.
So is the Common Energy Policy to follow such wonderful examples of management as the Common Agriculture Policy and Common Fisheries Policy? Given the EU's track record if it does you won't hear much about blackouts anymore, they will become so common as to not be newsworthy.
