EU leaders admit the new treaty is just the same as the rejected EU Constitution

The UK Government is claiming that the referendum it promised in 2004 is no longer necessary because the new treaty is nothing like the old EU Constitution.

But other European leaders have admitted that it is almost exactly the same…

“The substance of the Constitution is preserved. That is a fact.” - Angela Merkel, German Chancellor

“A great part of the content of the European Constitution is captured in the new treaties.”– Jose Zapatero, Spanish Prime Minister

“The good thing is...that all the symbolic elements are gone, and that which really matters – the core – is left.” – Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Danish Prime Minister

“They haven’t changed the substance - 90 per cent of it is still there.” – Bertie Ahern, Irish Taoiseach

“It’s essentially the same proposal as the old Constitution.” – Margot Wallstrom, European Commissioner

“Only cosmetic changes have been made and the basic document remains the same.” – Vaclav Klaus, Czech President

“There’s nothing from the original institutional package that has been changed.” – Astrid Thors, Finnish Europe Minister

“This text is, in fact, a rerun of a great part of the substance of the Constitutional Treaty.” – Valery Giscard d’Estaing, Author of the European Constitution
