Blair admits to treason

I must thank a reader who brought my attention to this quote from the PM's speech on the EU which may be read in full from this link. The dilemma of a British Prime Minister over Europe is acute to the point of the ridiculous. Basically you have a choice: co-operate in Europe and you betray Britain; be unreasonable in Europe, be praised back home, and be utterly without influence in Europe. It's sort of: isolation or treason. Strange that France etc., manage the same dilemma by steadfastly protecting their national interest! Margaret Thatcher eventually managed the same, albeit thereby losing her premiership to the ongoing shame of the Conservatives. List for yourselves those past PM's also thus indicted in Blair's own terms!
