Tony Blair has set a target of 2007 to take Britain into the euro, and wants the Government to agree to a public pledge to secure membership by that date.

The Guardian expects Blair to call for a referendum ? - I don't. He has always been against asking the people what they think about the euro, just in case they actually see exactly what a scam it is. If he does you can guarantee that he will use every bit of spin, fear and manipulation he can to make sure he gets the result he wants.

The move suggests the Prime Minister intends to call a referendum soon after the general election, which is expected in May or June next year. Although he has insisted he would serve a full third term if Labour retains power, some ministers expect him to stand down after such a referendum.
