on 20 April 2004 Blair told Parliament it should debate the European constitutional question "in detail and decide upon it" and "then let the people have the final say".

the Labour election manifesto in 2005 and the language is as forthright.
Blair promises: "We will put it [the constitution] to the British people in a referendum and campaign wholeheartedly for a Yes vote."
