Sarkozy won’t hold EU referendum

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, says that a referendum on the EU constitution in the UK would result in a no vote and has refused to hold a referendum in France “because that would mean having one in Britain and that would be a danger to Europe”.

The French and Dutch have already rejected the EU constitution once but are being refused the opportunity to reject it for a second time.

Jim Murphy, a Minister for Europe, is in the Netherlands today to discuss ways of avoiding having a referendum.

    Worth noting that Sego – who lost by a not exactly huge margin – was promising a 2nd vote on the treaty. So she was another pro-EU politico, but she had made the promise. Oh, wait. Labour did that.

    I note that Miliband’s bigging up the EU as the way to go for future wars of conquest. So much for the EU’s promise of peace…
