Tony's Parting Gift

Arguing for Britain, but obviously not for Britons, T Blair gains his point in discussions on the new European Constitution.

The Guardian reports:
"On Britain's central demand not to be subject to a European charter of fundamental rights which can be enforced by the European court of justice, the government won an extra "protocol" denying the court the right to get involved in British litigation, according to sources."
And a sly extra treat from Tone (also from The Guardian):
"He said the agreement sealed at the end of his last European Council summit in Brussels secured all of Britain's key demands and means the treaty will not require a referendum in the UK."
You know, like, "Trust me."
