The EU and the UK

This is just absolutely amazing. Regarding the issue of a referendum in Britain regarding a new EU treaty, a top EU official admitted that the treaty would involve a transfer of sovereignty from the UK to the EU, then went on to say:

"'I am astonished at those who are afraid of the people: one can always explain that what is in the interest of Europe is in the interests of our countries,' he told Belgian newspaper Le Soir.

"'Britain is different. Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?'"
