Forget constitution or we veto all plans, Britain tells the EU (Philip Webster, 2/01/07, Times of London)

Britain will refuse to sign up to minor changes in the running of the European Union unless it secures a pledge that there will be no revival of the European constitution, The Times has learnt.

Tony Blair and Gordon Brown have agreed that the Government should take a tough line to avoid the constitution dominating British politics for the two years leading up to the next election.

As we watch Baghdadistan struggle it's all too easy to forget how quickly political situations change. Recall just how recently the EU was thought to be inevitable, but now it's not only the continental states but the party of the British Left that are dispatching it.
