EU NEW treaty

  aine 19:44 11 Jul 2007

lets start a pole, a referendum should be called before this treaty is ratified in September. I for one wish to remain British not french/German European. Perhaps the new prime minister will see it, if he is listening to the public

He's already firmly declared that there will be no referendum.

So, it would appear, he is not listening and a poll is unlikely to be of any value.

Politicians normally only listen to what they want to hear or happen, not what the general public wants them to do.

"I didn't come into politics to change the Labour Party. I came into politics to change the country." is what the last PM said and he certainly did that.

I know I'm probably in a minority of 1, but prior to the last couple of enlargements I was a full federalist, hoping one day to hear Ode to Joy played at an Olympics medal ceremony.

Now that Malta gets to vote on Scottish fishing policy, and Scotland doesn't, I'm back to being a little islander!

And so you shall - nothing that's being proposed is going to change that. Where did you get that idea from?

I thought we were all going to be Europeans, with common beneficial ties and links ;o)

Referendum- Yes Please, but it may shock a few people in high places, if this was to happen.

We pay politicians to run our country that is what they are for. It is no use asking for a referendum every time we disagree with what they do.

It seems to me that some of the top brains in the country can`t agree as to if the EU is a good thing or not, so what chance have the public to sort it out in a referendum?

The days of the British Empire are long gone, thankfully. The future of the U.K. lies within an united Europe. We are British and will remain so, in or out of an united Europe.
