It seems I have a theme running through this morning's posts about honesty. mind you, when it comes to the Government it shouldn't be a surprise that honesty often goes out of the window, and I say that about all Government's in general, not just our Labour one. Take for example the proposed new EU Treaty. There is it seems, pretty much no one with the exception of our Government who does not consider the treaty to be the same treaty as before. We now have a group of to-level European politicians, some of which were involved in the original constitution, saying,
"The proposed new treaty and supplementary protocols take over almost all the innovations contained in the constitutional treaty. They only leave aside the symbolic changes which were introduced by the constitutional treaty – such as the title of the treaty or the symbols of the union."Meanwhile the Government says "Let’s be clear, the Reform Treaty is not the Constitutional Treaty – in form or content." I'm not sure if the spokesman from the Foreign office that said that was actually an ostrich rather than a human being though.
