Minister, whose dreams of scrapping the pound for the euro were dashed, is
desperate for a gesture at Britain’s expense to secure his legacy as a European
statesman before his retirement this summer.
Senior Tories and
Euro-sceptic campaigners savaged his pledge to sign a new European Union treaty
without a referendum.
The move will create a slimmed-down version of the European Constitution that
collapsed after being rejected by Dutch and French voters.
If EU leaders can
agree the wording of the treaty, Mr Blair could sign the document at an EU
summit in two months’ time, just before Mr Blair quits No10.
The treaty will establish the post of European Union President (for which Tony
Blair is favourite to fill), along with European Foreign and Justice
If Blair signs a new Treaty, This man will be
a Traitor to his country, that will be his legacy.
Destroying Britain from the inside out.
