The EU's Foreign Minister will speak from the UK's UN Securty Council seat
This is the type of thing that the Lisbon Treaty will get in through the back door. You know it must be bad if William Hague is calling it a " big step towards a united States of Europe".
Just what though will the Conservatives do about it? Well they said they would not let matters rest there and Hague is clearly not happy with such a coup by the EU, so surely the Tories won't let things like there?
Except, sadly, the Conservatives are going to be about as useful on the issue of the EU as a chocolate teapot. Unless an in or out referendum is threatened, those in Brussels will dismiss Cameron and Hague off-hand. And you better believe that the Conservative Party would rather except whatever the European Union has to throw at Britain in order to avoid more in-fighting. It's how we got into this mess in the first place.
