Official LibDem In/Out Petition Site Still Live

The LibDems stood on a manifesto commitment to hold an In/Out EU referendum. They were so keen on the idea that they set up a petition campaign website:

You can still sign

UPDATE: Took them a few hours to erase the evidence down the digital memory hole.

    David Cameron (Cheif Bullshitter says) says:

    My name is Kipper Cameron I’m an arsehole and a snob
    I promised referendums untill I got my job
    Throughout the last election you believed my CAST IRON vow
    But I don’t give a fuck for you, I’m the PM now

    I am all for the EU I think there realy great
    And if they want your money I will hand it on a plate
    I will not fight their burocrats, or cut back immigration
    I will do my utmost to fuck the British Nation

    So forget your Rule Britania that was prosperous and free
    Forget when you could speak your mind I demand PC
    I know a million immigrants in Britain are employed
    Whilst all our youth are on the dole and I am overjoyed

    SO FUCK OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    misterned says:

    And is it not time that the polling organisations started either, listing UKIP separately from ‘others’ or including the Lib Dems in the ‘others’ seeing as how UKIP will probably be overtaking the Lib-dems in national polling after Monday’s betrayal of the British people in the Commons? UKIP have been consistently over recent months, only a point or two behind the Lib-dems up till now.

    Well at least it gives the lie to the worth of the e-petitions scam…..100,000 people sign and the politicians will hold a debate(but of course they’ll still ignore public opinion anyway but they’re not even going through with the sham of actually debating and then voting on it….this debate is a waste of time as it’s already a foregone conclusion)

    You can blame me for that, I was given responsibility for drafting the form and I can’t spell. Looking at the big picture though, you must all vote yes, otherwise I will not be able to go on my trips to eastern europe any more, and that would be a great pity, especially as you are paying for them. On another note, I have had lots of people demand that I resign as an MP. Well I am not going to and here is a statement from my spokesman.

    A Divided Dysfunctional Coalition and Empty Eddy Milliwhatnot sitting on the (Berlin) Wall, like his Dad told him to, who will not dare to go into the next Election as a Europhile (and New/OLd/Coinfused Labout is utterly divided on this as well)

    3 line whip from all 3 major parties ???? so much for peoples representatives then……

    This is the second time the lib dems have signed a policy and run off , yellow b****rds , should be forced to remove the democratic bit from there name , come to think of it might as well remove liberal , and insert floppy , We agreed to AV and they do this .And as for Labour if they cannot even give there own mps a free voted , perhaps people in these labour constituancies will wake up to what has become of them .

    I never thought such a question would be treated in this way in parliament , but this thing has been going on for some time really hasnt it .

    it is a legitimate and worthy question to ask , but then I am now aware of the question I thought trustingly had been asked all these years has been answered all along .
    What is the end detemination of the progressives ??? is it some sort of fabian construct .I understand it in terms of a challenging some ignorant stigmas , but its the caravan of stifling wonkness that comes with it , better behavoir seems to have become living in a perscriptive soft spin prison camp rather than the perhaps more multifaceted organic thing it really is built on democratic freedom .
