Labour Start to Shift on In/Out Referendum

As Guido recommended last year, Labour could play a blinder if they outflank the Tories on the issue of an EU referendum. It appears there could be some movement:

If Dave does end up on the wrong side of history here, he only has himself to blame…

    I don’t trust Labour to ask the right question (ie, In/Out) – and a we@ker choice of ‘renegotiation’ would hinder any subsequent attempt to ask the fundamental question re membership or not.

    jgm2 says:

    They promised an alternate voting system and a referendum on it back in 1997. Yet somehow, with their 200 seat majority, they never delivered. Then, in desperation, they promised the same thing in 2010 but then failed to vote in favour when given the opportunity.

    Labour are liars. Wilful liars. If the voters fall for their continual lies then they (we) deserve everything that’s coming. Just like the Greeks.

    Steve Miliband says:

    Brown probably already signed us out

    Fish says:

    Nell, Dave did but only if Lisbon, remained unratified.

    I think that you’re getting him confused with the Great Imbecile, who was the one who reneged on his promise (and slithered in at the end of the Treaty’s signing ceremony to sign it out of public view).

  16. 16
    Well it's a thought says:

    You really believe Liebour crap would give the people of Britain a “yes” “no” referendum or will they do what they did last time with the aid of the media and go for a “yes” “yes” one, screw that, trust Liebour you gotta be kidding, besides brown went to his tame judges and his tame judges says anything coming out of Liebour is just dre-ams, pie in the sky..

    More hot air, either have a referendum or as likely don’t

    To use the crisis in the EU and the contentious issue of whether we, the Electorate actually wish to remain a member purely to play Politics just about sum up the Lib/Lab/Con.

    They have NO intention of EVER holding such a Referendum as they know it will be a resounding NO Vote, which is the last thing they want

    Vote UKIP

    nellnewman says:

    Indeed you are quite right. I had forgotten about Dave’s clause re ratification.

    And I have to admit that even if labour promised and in/out EU referendum I wouldn’t vote for them. To watch them trash what’s left of our economy even further is too high a price to pay.

    As soon as the money has cleared your share of the six million dollars will be wired to the shared account.

    misterned says:

    I am still going to vote UKIP, because out of all of the parties, the only one I believe about a referendum on the EU is UKIP. Even then I do not believe it 100%.

    I do not believe labour or the liberal democrats AT ALL. The Liberal Democrats are the only party out of all of them to promise a specific in-or-out referendum on membership of the EU in their last manifesto. All bar one of them voted against that exact manifesto promise in the commons.

    The others promised non-specific kind of EU treaty referenda.

    I certainly do NOT trust, or believe any of the main three, Europhile, parliamentary parties to honour any promise of a referendum, UNLESS there is a consistent 80%+ people stating that they would vote to stay in the EU.

    I seem to remember Dave making the promise when it was already too late. Perhaps there were a couple of countries about to ratify at the time, but even so, it was very unlikely to have been possible when promised.

    Hugh Janus says:

    Come on Guido, even my dog could outflank the Tories in their current state. As others have commented, I wouldn’t trust Tory or Liebour leaders to deliver a referendum on the EU, but my desperation is such that I probably would trust UKIP since they have not been tainted – as far as I know – with thoughts of diving in the EU trough at the first invitation. (I know that some will say our Nige has a slightly questionable past when it comes to this unedifying activity, but on balance I would certainly give him a run for our money – but only once, just like One-Term-Dave, who masquerades as ‘Cast Iron’ but who is anything but.

    (Former life-long Conservative voter, but never again on present form.)

  52. 52

    Fish says:

    No. Dave promised a referrendum before Lisbon had been signed and called on Brown not to do so, so that the people could have their say. Brown ignored him (and the British people) and rushed to sign before the election took place.

    This is yet another of the landmines and wreckage that Labour left the new government to sort out.

    Was it Brown’s incompetence or deliberate? Given what we know about the man I’m 100% certain that, along with so many other things, it was the latter

    McClusky: “What the fuck does the twat want now, OK send him in”.
    Milliband (for it is he): “Mr McClusky, I want a new bandwagon, I don’t like this Hunt one, besides that Harriott woman keeps going on about it. It’s not fair everyone’s got a new band wagon; Ballsy’s got a new one pretending to want to give a referendum on ewrop, even that ugly fat woman’s got one on her chickin nuggets. I wont one. You promised me I could have a new one every week”.
    Cluskey: “I can’t give you one right now son, me and the boys are trying to get rid of this government so we, err, you can be in charge. Now scoot off there’s a good lad and I’ll get someone to think of a new one for you later, oh and do us a favour, on your way out find the tea lady and ask to bring some more tea.

    Exactly. There’s a big problem with voting for UKIP – as an exemplum, it’s a bit like leaving your house unlocked all the time – you get the benefit of never having to worry about where your door keys are(get rid of the EU) but the downside is unknown(If they can ever deliver on anything UKIP “promise”, and if there are unstoppable financial implications), and the chances are that really, REALY bad things WILL happen on their watch to everything else you personally hold dear.

    I have to say that I would rather vote Liebore than UKIP, and I have been like Man City – light blue my whole life. And I would NEVER vote LieBore.

    The wont give you a referendum any more than the Tories would, Both parties thin the public are stupid enough to believe them. Blair promised one Brown promised a vote on Lisbon and Cameron gave us a CAST IRON GARENTEE

    Fucking liers the lot of them, It’s UKIP for me and I believe it will be UKIP for many. If the Tories were ever going to give us a referendum they would give it BEFORE the next election and act immedeatly on the result. That way they could win a landslide but that won’t happen they think they can con us again . NO CHANCE

    The Times they are a changing

    Come all the electorate throughout the UK
    It’s time to ignore what the LIBLABCON say
    Lets face it these parties have all had their day
    Our politics need rearranging
    So go out and vote UKIP lets sweep them away
    For the times they are a changing

    Not one of them listens to our point of view
    They’d sooner give our cash to the EU
    So lets kick them out and try something new
    We can’t afford this lot remaining
    Political rethink is long overdue
    For the times they are a changing

    They lied about Lisbon and promised a vote
    There all Europhiles and in the same boat
    Their treachery just bring a lump to my throat
    As each other they just keep blaming
    So send them a message and let them take note
    That the times they are a changing

    We will no longer tolerate lies being told
    Tax breaks for the rich but more tax for the old
    Ruled from the EU and our birthrights sold
    They ignore us when we are complaining
    If we all vote UKIP there out in the cold
    For the times they all need changing

    I’m Voting UKIP and so should anyone who realy wants a referendum

    I vaguely recall an election promise by Labour in 2005 to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Constitution/Treaty/Call it what you will. What happened to that? I recall a cast-iron guarantee of a similar referendum by the Tories, and what happened to that?

    As to any other party offering an in/out referendum – well, it would be a very good idea, but I’ll believe them when I walk through the door of the polling station to cast my vote in said referendum, and not before.

    Thre is no “far right” in this country.

    Unless of course you mean by “far right” people who wish that the government we elect actually governs in the best interest of the electors and not some unelected and unremovable Kommissars, in another country.

    Do yourself a favour and buy a decent dictionary, or of course you could just stop lying.

    The entire Leveson fiasco, is like a show trial you would hear about happening during the soviet era. Ghastly people, all with agendas, all shuffling around to a pre-determined verdict and the truth be damned.

    Tory Party RIP - Killed by Camoron says:

    You can also bet your life that as soon as LibLabCon announced the date of the referendum, the BBC would bombard the public with 24/7 with glorious EU propaganda and horror stories about the perils of leaving.

    The government would send expensive taxpayer-funded ‘information’ packs (in 70 different languages) to every homes, complete with DVD and link to interactive website (which would crash immediately), telling us all how great the EU is and how, without it, we will all inevitably die of leprosy.

    exactly if Liebour want us to took the Party seriously then get on an introduce the legislation via the mechansim open to the opposition enforcing a three line whip on Labour MPs to vote in favour of a referendum on IN / OUT

    Right, I wouldn’t trust them any more than I would trust Cameron to deliver a referendum. If they do the question(s) would be so framed so that the answers could be interpreted any way they want.

    Sad Tory says:

    The Torys are making it easy for Ed now and at the next election. e.g. the shortage of beds in the NHS and people facing long waits and treatment in hospital corridors is not good news. As we found out at the recent elections it is issues which directly affect people that influence their votes.

    But at least all the millionaires in the cabinet, the 45 percent tax rate payers and all the bankers are safe because they can afford private health insurance for themselves and their families. Phew, thank goodness for that, for a moment there I was worried. Dave and Nick take a bow for that.

    Just wait ’til the reduction in bobbies lead to increased crime figures Gawd ‘elp us.

    Anybody else notice how quiet our child of the Fourth Reich has gone on the matter of the Irish Referendum?

    A bit ashamed are we Guido, as all your compatriots squirm beneath the heel of Miss Piggy’s jackboot and dutifully and obediently line up to vote “Ja” to formalising rule from Berlin.

    At least old de Valera will be smiling in his grave.

    Don't give a shit about Labour etc... says:

    No mate – Ukip as a political party are on the far right of politics in the UK – don’t need a dictionary to work that out, as I had a half decent (sometimes paid for) education.

    The lies are being told by Nige and his cohorts. You are accepting them because of a psychological trick akin to wish fulfilment syndrome- they are saying what you want to hear, therefore you will not ask too many deep questions of them, after all they are “your” answer to the situation, aren’t they?!

    How’s that whole “educational trust” thing coming on? Any answers to that yet? Hmm?

    You do realise that Farage is married to a foreigner don’t you? He’s a libertarian who believes in small government – and a government that holds referenda as per the Swiss model. He’s not frecking Adolf and has no desire to invade France (admittedly that might count against him)

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
