Blair’s remarks are curious to those of us in Ireland who voted No in both identical Nice referenda. He seems to be talking around the issue rather than directly answering the questions posed.
I would imagine that if the UK does vote No to the referendum that Blair will go back to the EU and attempt some kind of renegotiation, followed by a second referendum. This will be just a small bit more than the Irish government tried to do – it simply put the same question a year later.
Could this become a trend in European nations?
