Not So Great Britain

Blair ‘will hand powers to EU without referendum’ | June 20, 2007

Gordon Brown has pledged to hold a referendum on the European constitution if Tony Blair failed to get a good deal for Britain this week.

The Chancellor stressed that he was confident the Prime Minister would refuse to give up key powers over foreign policy and crime at his final Brussels summit. Mr Brown predicted that “we will get what we need” to protect the UK’s position.

No10 has claimed it would not hold a referendum on any amending treaty that emerged from the meeting. But Mr Brown told GMTV today he was open to the idea of a vote should Brussels win greater powers over key areas.
