I listened to a very good discussion on 5 Live this afternoon about the new EU Constitution (for that is what it is). Apparently the English version has been published today, and it is 96% identical to the original Constitution which was rejected by the voters of France and the Netherlands. Only 10 out of 250 proposals in the new treaty are different from the proposals in the original EU Constitution. Sadly the BBC News website carries no report of its publication that I can see.
Open Europe have an excellent analysis of the new Constitution HERE. It's shameful that the government has ruled out a referendum. This is something the Conservatives should grip, and campaign over the summer to force the government to change its mind.
Check out the excellent Open Europe blog HERE.
