Prospect features an interesting article by Anand Menon, Professor of European politics at the University of Birmingham, on what will be a struggle to ratify the EU Constitutional Treaty;
Ultimately, the task of the yes campaign [in Britain] is to persuade the public that membership of the EU is not a lonely, brave struggle against perfidious partners intent on foisting European federalism upon us.

Not only has this attempt been staggeringly successful, it has recently come to benefit Britain disproportionately by favouring British views of public policy - views codified, enshrined and entrenched in the latest revision of the founding treaties. Surely even our government should be capable of selling such a success story?
