Erm, no, you\’ve got this the wrong way around.
I have jolted quite a long way down a winding path into the future; but it is a perfectly plausible path. Just as Europe finally puts all the arguments about its own constitution behind it, and starts to get to grips with the issues that really matter – climate change, international terrorism and China\’s role on the world stage – it is possible that Britain will absent herself from these decisions.
The political structure, the constitutional arrangements, by which we reach decisions are vastly more important than those "issues which really matter". For if we don\’t have the correct structure: if, for example, we\’re locked into a grossly undemocratic European super-state, then how can we have any confidence at all that reasonable let alone correct answers will be reached on those "important issues"?
