If William Hague wishes to put the matter beyond doubt he should make it clear that Parliament is sovereign in all matters except in surrendering its own powers. That is a matter for the British people who merely entrust the power to govern for the term of one Parliament at a time. Ratification of the Reform Treaty is matter for the British people in a Referendum and a matter only for them. Since he has made this commitment for future Treaties (which is of course irrelevant given the self amending terms of the present Treaty) it should require no great effort to spell out the same for current one. Anything less would be intellectually dishonest.
