Europe's leaders will need a hangover cure
As they're waking up this morning over Europe, clutching their heads and asking themselves 'Oh God, what did I do?' the continent's leaders will be feeling the full effects of post-constitution remorse. Ireland and Denmark alone are committed to a referendum; Labour have been happy to continue their usual tactic of lying to the people of the UK and treating their manifesto commitments like Blair's assurances - as specious puffery. The people of France and Holland have already rejected the treaty that their leaders signed them up to last week.
Labour's weasel words can't disguise the fact that Blair signed up to a European state with a unified legal code, a President and Foreign Minister. And no doubt in Brussels as I type, some petty Eurocrat is already preparing a paper on the promotion of a European football team for the next World Cup.
The demands from the British people for a referendum will surely grow.
