Jim's headline misrepresents Cash's motion, and it is crucial - absolutely vital - that we do not go down the path his headline implies. It is simply not true that Cash's motion says there should be "No EU Treaty". What it says is that the British government should make clear to France and Germany that it "will veto any [treaty that transferred areas of power, or competences]" - we can insert "from Westminster to Brussels". Bill Cash is not opposed to all EU Treaties - as far as I am aware, he never has been. He has long favoured renegotiation of our position within the EU, and is thus in favour of a new Treaty - namely a renegotiated Treaty.
Eurosceptics really must get this right. We are not opposed to new Treaties - our position is precisely the opposite of this! Our position is that not having any more Treaties is unacceptable, as it would leave the position post-Lisbon where it lay! Our position is to favour renegotiation of the Treaty, not to oppose renegotiation!
Furthermore, whilst we are about it, in response to my post and to the Editor's, many commenters said things like "I quite agree - let's have our referendum now!" There must be no referendum. Forget that. It isn't going to happen. Why on earth would we want a referendum on a renegotiation we had pursued ourselves? We would only want a referendum if what was produced involved some constitutional change that was felt to require the consent of The People. Apart from disagreeing with that concept in principle (I have no real interest in "the consent of The People" as manifest in a referendum - I believe in Parliamentary Democracy, in sovereignty of the Crown in Parliament, and as such am of course as much an opponent of sovereignty being lost by Parliament to plebiscites as I am to its being lost to Brussels) - apart from disagreeing with it in principle, even in its own terms there would be no function in such a referendum. The reason is that (as Cash's motion actually states) we should absolutely not consent to any new Treaty that passes yet more powers to Brussels - and so should not present any such Treaty for a referendum. The Treaty we want (we must have) is one that passes powers from Brussels back to Westminster - why would we need any kind of referendum on that?
