    If you disagree with something then you should say so not hide away and curse the measure from afar (in the hope no one notices).

  2. Our politicians want to be a bit more careful

    There is a serious danger of them actually doing something the public wants them to do.

    This Bill will go nowhere. The reason why there is a coalition is because the Tories couldn't command a majority at the last election. Their partners don't want this Bill, anti-EU Labour MPs were upset by the blatent party political nature of the Bill and so won't support it. The Tories can't garner enough support to moe the Bill forward. It will die on it's arse.
     
  5. Mugatu is Tom Watson in flesh. :wink:

     
  6. The Bill will "die on it's arse" when Labour wins the next election due to the UKIP effect.

    Remember, a vote for UKIP is a vote to deprive oneself of a referendum and another Labour government resolutely wedded to further EU integration.

    What exactly will the vote be? A straight "Yes-No/In-Out", or a myriad of terms and conditions, with no chance of a real break?

    I would like to see the former, but strongly suspect the latter. More weasel worded, voter - awing tripe from our 'betters'.

  9. If that is the case WhiteCity Old Chap, then surely the sensible option would be to hold a referendum prior to the GE, thereby taking the wind out of UKIPs sails?

  10. How strange - the Tories introduce a LibDem election pledge and Clegg & Co disappear.

    Remember this from their manifesto -

    What is it with LibDems and election promises?
