Selling a dummy

Sir: Did Mr Blair really say to Mr Hague at Question Time in the House of Commons on 16 June, "The truth is that you have sold the past to the Eurosceptics", as recorded in your report the following day?

Since most politicians are more concerned with buying a piece of the future, at least for themselves, one wonders whether the Eurosceptics paid in euros, to hedge their bets. Selling the pass would be a telling enough reproach to make to the leader of a conservative party, but selling the past must surely be fatal.
