Cameron reneges on European referendum
They don't call it a constitution, at least not since the French and Dutch rejected it. A few words were changed here and there and the Lisbon Treaty was created, but it amounts to the same thing. The Tories promised the British people a referendum on this document, but now that the Czechs have ratified it they have reneged on that promise.
All the Tories had to do was sit back, watch Nu-Labour continue to self-destruct and then reap the benefit at the next election. Instead they have started to play silly buggers, and have opened up all their old wounds over the issue of Britain's continued membership of the European Union.
The sensible thing for David Cameron to do would be to pledge a referendum on withdrawal from the EU. At a stroke her would ensure a massive majority at the next election, as well as cutting into the soft underbelly of the BNP vote.
However, whoever said that politicians were sensible?
