Fair's Fair

Boris Johnson told The Mail on Sunday:

'A referendum ... sends the message that we don’t want some big magnifico swanning round the globe purporting to be acting on our behalf when we haven’t even been consulted as to whether it should be Tony Blair or not.’

Goodness. The suggestion that post Lisbon the UK (and no doubt subsequently every other member state) should have a referendum on who is to be 'the big magnifico' is quite a shot across the bows. The European Union needs to watch its step on the post agreement codicils every state is adding to its ratification. If a reserved power is there for one member state it must be there for all.
