Not So Great Britain

EU constitution dead…for now | June 23, 2007

Germany has proposed to EU states that they should agree to drop the idea of a constitution when they meet at a summit in Brussels on Thursday and Friday. The “constitutional concept… is abandoned”, says a paper circulated by Germany, which will chair the summit.

The paper makes several concessions to EU member states opposed to key parts of the failed constitution.

But Poland and the UK are still warning they could use their vetoes if they do not get their way on a new treaty.

Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski said a veto remained “highly likely” while UK Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett said no deal was better than a bad deal.
