What gives, Tony?
One man who may benefit from the EU is also shortly in search of a large income to service his lifestyle and the three houses he has acquired since becoming Prime Minister. The man, of course, is Tony Blair. Senior Whitehall officials claim that he “intends to use his remaining weeks in office to surrender British powers to Brussels as part of his drive for a European ‘legacy’”.
To secure a political and financial legacy, Tony Blair plans to sell the British people’s legacy of freedom, democracy, and independence? I am afraid the idea does not beggar belief.
One answer – the British people insist on a referendum that will reshape their relationship with Europe, and they win it.
