Have you Reflected yet?...

Hansard 20 Jun 2005 : Column 523 The Prime Minister (Mr. Tony Blair):

[European]... Council conclusions, standing the results of the French and Dutch referendums, the treaty cannot proceed. It is therefore sensible instead to have a period of reflection, in which the critical questions as to Europe's future direction are debated.


Merkel alarms Blair over EU constitution

"We may allow a pause for further consideration and second thoughts but we have made it very clear that we are willing to make our contribution to whatever is necessary to see the constitution come into force." German Chancellor (Daily Telegraph)

Well Tony

HAVE you Reflected yet?...

For the world's events have rumbled on since those gagged days,
Like traffic checked a while at the crossing of city ways:
And the haunted gap in your mind has filled with thoughts that flow
Like clouds in the lit heavens of life; and you're a man reprieved to go,

Taking your peaceful share of Time, with joy to spare.
But the past is just the same,-and the EU's a bloody game....
Have you Reflected yet?...

Do you remember that hour of din just after the attack,-
And the anger, the blind compassion that seized and shook you then
As you peered at the doomed and haggard faces of your men?
Do you remember the stretcher-cases lurching back
With dying eyes and lolling heads, those ashen-grey
Masks of the lads who once were keen and kind and gay?

Have you Reflected yet?...
