Quote of the Day

Sunny Hundal says the Left needs to

“…get dirty and partisan – I’d say that is exactly where we need to be.”

Cameron : We Want a Referendum

Dave is trying to push a firm line on Europe post Ireland’s likely ‘Yes’ vote. The Tories have just emailed out a message from Dave giving the line:

lisbon_yes_noI want to make one thing clear: there will be no change in our policy on Europe and no new announcements at the Conference. There will be no change in Conservative policy as long as the Lisbon Treaty is still not in force. The Treaty has still not been ratified by the Czechs and the Poles. The Czech Prime Minister has said that the constitutional challenge before the Czech Constitutional Court could take 3-6 months to resolve.

I have said repeatedly that I want us to have a referendum. If the Treaty is not ratified in all Member States and not in force when the election is held, and if we are elected, then we will hold a referendum on it, we will name the date of the referendum in the election campaign, we will lead the campaign for a ‘No’ vote.

If the Treaty is ratified and in force in all Member States, we have repeatedly said we would not let matters rest there. But we have one policy at a time, and we will set out how we would proceed in those circumstances if, and only if, they happen.

klaus+cameron
Tory policy now depends on the success of Václav Klaus, the libertarian leaning President of the Czech Republic, challenging the constitutionality of the Treaty. Guido has met Václav Klaus, and he is a clear-sighted fighter, not a quitter.  If he can hold off the EU-elite’s constitutional steam-roller until the British general election, all is not lost.

Holding a referendum is popular across party lines, if the general election becomes a referendum on Brown and Europe all the better. Ken Clarke may have a huff, but he is one of the few prominent Europhiles left in the Conservative Party…

Irish Need a Tie-Break Referendum

lisbon_yes_noWell it is looking like a bad day for Irish sovereignty. Guido feels a bit guilty about not going home to vote. The entire Irish political establishment including the formerly anti-EU Greens backed the Brussels gravy train, the state media and the press likewise. With Declan Ganley neutered the anti-Treaty forces were lacking in leadership. The likely result according to exit polls is a ‘yes’.

That makes it No 1, Yes 1, so surely we need a tie-break referendum?

The Tory Fringe Online

Looks like it will be busy this year on the Tory Fringe.  Guido is using Fringelist.com to organise his schedule online. Register for the service and it will send you free text reminders for events you add to your schedule.  The service integrates with Blackberry, iPhone and desktop calendars.  Or you can just print out the schedule on paper.

It integrates with social media networks Facebook and Twitter, tells you what the most popular event is, letting you search the Fringe to find out who is speaking where and when.  If you want to know where Hannan is, just search for his name. You will get a free text reminder telling where you are supposed to be before the event starts.  It is hangover proof.

It is very social, you can see where your mates are going : tory.fringelist.com/goers. For example you can see where Guido is going tory.fringelist.com/guido.fawkes
