Lord Lamont comments on the French Referendum and the EU Constitution

Press Release from
Comment on the French Referendum
and the EU Constitution

The Rt Hon. Lord Lamont of Lerwick


Lord Lamont, former Chancellor of the Exchequer, British negotiator at Maastricht and Co-Chairman of the Bruges Group says,

The Europe of Delors, Mitterand and Kohl is dead. No means no. Europe’s self-serving political elite will make a profound mistake and create an awakening of bitterness if they try to sidestep France’s historic vote.

Europe is a dysfunctional mess. Europe needs to go back to square one. Blair and the British Government in their role as the Presidency of the EU should renegotiate the existing treaties to create a looser free trade Europe of 25 countries.
