  1. With all the gaining momentum of UKIP or at the least a choice on a EU referendum, Liabour has made sure it has ignored the people.Miliband Rules Out EU Referendum Promise Miliband has rejected calls for Labour to promise a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union. The Labour leader has responded to the renewed debate on membership of the EU following the UK Independence Party's success last week in the local elections and the intervention of former Chancellors Lord Lawson and Lord Lamont, who both said they would vote to leave in any future referendum.

    Yep remember that one, they bought the voting booths to the prairie of BATUS, but we where only allowed to vote on the Common Market which was about trade amongst those who signed up, there was nothing about supporting more free loading politicians who where unable to find a proper job. They must have spiked our papers.
