victim to the populist-led fear campaign against EU membership – a campaign aided and abetted by many of Cameron’s fellow Conservative Party members. Cameron was replaced as Conservative Party leader and prime minister by Theresa May, who in March 2017 initiated the process of negotiating the UK’s departure from the EU. The process, under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on European Union, promised to stretch out over many months or even years. Whether it will end up as a “soft” departure, with generous terms for the UK, or a more punitive approach, remains to be

A European education?

. Against that background the current debate on the outcome of the EU referendum is hopelessly inadequate. Among former Remainers as well as former Leavers, the prevailing assumption is that, because around 37 per cent of the eligible electorate voted Leave, there is nothing more to be said. Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty has been invoked; and that is the end of the story. But as Lord Kerr, who wrote Article 50, has pointed out, the British government’s Article 50 application is revocable. In fact, the future is open. We are not doomed to suffer the economic

deployment of these units. In June 2017, the European Council had cited the Lisbon Treaty in its effort to broaden the base of the costs that members incurred in support of the program. Specifically, the BGs would consist of 1,500 personnel who would be prepared for 30-day missions that could be extended to 120 days. The aim would be the establishment of two such units at a time, and they would be in standby for six months. Overall, the BGs

rejection of the Nice and Lisbon treaties in Ireland. Because of the perception of Ireland as a good European, ‘when Ireland voted No to the Treaty of Nice in June 2001, the reaction in many quarters was as if a good pupil had suddenly misbehaved’ ( Holmes 2005a : 1). The further No vote on the Treaty of Lisbon in 2008 suggested that ‘Ireland’s long-standing consensus on the

The Constitutional Treaty, however, did not garner adequate public support and was effectively abandoned in 2005 following failed referendums in France and the Netherlands. The document was eventually replaced by the Lisbon Treaty (2007). In terms of content, the Lisbon Treaty does not depart substantially from the Constitutional Treaty. The former preserves most of the content of the latter. The Lisbon Treaty outlines the exclusive policy competences of the EU, but

This move, among others, was designed to address the question of identifiability in matters concerning responsibility for leading the Union (Blavoukos et al. 2007). Several issues can be raised at this point.

Both the European Council and the Commission de facto play a
