Not So Great Britain

Brown to allow UK to have a referendum on Europe | June 19, 2007

Gordon Brown dramatically raised the stakes on Europe last night by threatening to let the British people have a referendum on the results of this week’s critical summit. In a clear warning to Tony Blair he offered to put the next European treaty to a popular vote if it fails to take account of Britain’s objections.

With two out of three voters declaring themselves firmly opposed to an EU super-state, a referendum would be certain to produce a resounding “No”.

Mr Brown’s willingness to deploy the “nuclear option” in the event of a British defeat in Brussels sends a clear message to other EU countries that the UK will not budge.
