The Kiss of Death

The Leader of the Opposition's decision to rule out a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union has seen him clasped, perhaps unhelpfully, in the toxic embrace of Anthony Charles Lynton Blair.

The man and his intervention were probably best summed up by Daniel Hannan MEP, writing for The Daily Mail on Tuesday:

As he put it towards the end of his premiership: ‘The British people are sensible enough to know that, even if they have a certain prejudice about Europe, they don’t expect their government necessarily to share it or act upon it.’
Got that? You may want something; but you secretly yearn for politicians who will ignore you. There is the authentic voice of the Euro-integrationist: smug, vain and wrong.

Well worth reading in full.
