So its not out of the Question then

According to the Economist's Charlemagne column,
"European officials have discussed among themselves what might happen in the (admittedly unlikely) event that domestic politics forces Britain's new prime minister, Gordon Brown, to hold a referendum on the new treaty. If Britain were to vote no to a treaty that is already a painful compromise, Europe would enter uncharted waters. And keeping the EU moving at a single pace might then become Brussels's latest lost cause".

Well put it this way, shifts from unlikely to accepted wisdom happen all the time.
