So, the dreaded Euro-Treaty has been signed. How much longer do we have to put up with Euro-sceptic fanatics forecasting the end of civilisation unless we have a referendum to stop it? Perhaps even more tedious are those Tories who imagine that the increasingly strange antics of Gisela Stuart reflect the views of the majority of the Labour Party, and that the European issue will do for Gordon Brown what the 'bastards' did to John Major. Even Fraser Nelson, whose analysis in the Spectator can sometimes be illuminating, seems to be suffering from a serious dose of wishful thinking this week.
