    If Peer Steinbruck’s comments a much delayed timetable for agreeing a new European Union Treaty (ie beyond 2017) becomes the general position of other EU governments (which is likely to be the case) then David Cameron’s entire strategy for blackmailing the rest of the Union into giving the UK radically re-written terms of EU membership is sunk without trace. For without being able to threaten a Treaty veto unless his demands are met, he has no negotiating leg to stand on.
