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.

      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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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 .
