Colleagues feel pressure as Europe voters begins to rebel

It would seem that pressure over the new European Constitution is growing – right across Europe

In Germany it is estimated that 80 per cent of them want a referendum on the constitution and 60 per cent believe that EU membership has brought them no benefits whatever. Story on The First Post.

The Telegraph reports: A “hard core” of at least 40 Labour MPs in the UK are poised to issue the Prime Minister with an ultimatum to re-open talks on the treaty or concede a referendum.

Also in the UK, the TUC is wading into the debate, with at least 2 big unions GMB and RMT backing the call for a referendum.

DutchNews.nl, reports: The Dutch Labour party has a mini rebellion on its hands that could, if not properly managed, turn into a fully-fledged coup. Around 25 party members including a number of big names, want the party to become more left wing. They want to fight moves to make it easier to sack people, a super tax on the wealthy and a referendum over the new EU treaty.

Meanwhile Belgium slides into a constitutional crisis as Polls are being conducted on whether Flanders should claim independence or try to unite with the Netherlands, and though all of this no sign of a new Belgian government being formed.

We can only assume that Merkel and Brown got the message as they were being boo'd by both England and German fans during their appearance on the big screen at the new Wembley Stadium this week for the friendly International match.

If they didnt, then there is a Pro referendum Rally taking place in London on SATURDAY 27TH OCTOBER 2007. There will be 4 separate rally routes into London – North, South, East and West, converging at Trafalgar Square, proceeding up The Mall and culminating in Hyde Park (the only venue in central London capable of accommodating this size of rally +500,000).
