    If we want a referendum, for or against, it is a simple reality that neither Clegg, nor Farage’s lot can do anything more than reduce the chances of us getting one.
    Therefore every vote cast for either of these parties, in respect of the European issue is a complete waste of pen and paper.
    In other respects the Lib Dems have nothing else to offer apart from wrecking and UKIP have no opinions or policies whatsoever, so they are both pointless.

        The problem with his promise of a referendum is the definition of a transfer of power to the EU. Just what qualifies that definition is anybody’s guess and needs to be very precisely defined.
        My guess is that if he wins and he does try to prevaricate, the anti-EU sector in the party, both Parliamentary and other will simply destroy him.
        I think the other major problem facing the Tories is their apparent complete inability to state their case and defend themselves.
        All of us who possess a brain know very well that they could not call a referendum on Lisbon as the Treaty had already been signed and ratified (another wrecking tactic of Brown). Nevertheless their response to those who still accuse them of breaking their promise is woefully lacking.
        It is the same with the ‘bedroom tax’. We all know it is not a tax, yet they consistently fail to respond when it is so called. Even last night on Newsnight, one Tory Minister, a woman, completely failed to respond when it was called the ‘bedroom tax’.
        Whilst Guido Readers may be intelligent enough to understand these issues, we can be quite certain that a critical mass of the electorate do not understand and by not defending themselves in putting the record straight, the Tories simply giving credence to these accusations by default.
        I suspect that a large part of the problem is that they simply do not recognise that the bulk of the electorate are not possessed of their huge brains and therefore they simply do not see the need to respond.
        I fear that by not defending themselves, they are allowing history to be manipulated and that this will be much to their cost in 2015.
        Now whatever we think of Andy Coulson, he did bring an understanding of the Red Top reading public and would never have sat idly by while this dis-information is peddled by the Opposition without holding them to account.

          In short – this promise is worth as much as the paper it is printed on, and that paper in this case is completely worthless.

          People should be cognizant of that, and certainly are aware of the dangerous precedent that would be set if one Parliament could determine the course of action of a future Parliament.

    Norman Smith on BBC News 24 says “Farage may have maybe maybe maybe just sneaked it”.
    If he’s that stupid he needs sacking.

      The Press across the board are and have been living in denial for decades – it has been them ‘living the lie’ while pumping out the spiel for their moneymen and the londoncentric Laundromat.

      Are the days of a handful of media megalomaniacs (for at least 9 decades) controlling what goes by their influencing and ‘prompting’ – OVER?

    Lord Muck says:

    Neither farage or clegg emphasised the essential point, namely that we are in danger of losing completely the sovereignty and independence of our country to a foreign power, to unelected and unnacountable bureaucrats in Brussels. Let’s not forget that our own queen stood by and allowed the royal assent to be given to 6 eu treaties effectively signing away our democracy and ability to govern ourselves in direct contravention of the coronation oath she took in 1952 when she swore to “govern the British People according to our own laws and customs”. Treason has been comitted on a huge scale from the moment ted heath lied through his effing teeth when he said the common market was just a trading aggreement. It does not matter at all if jobs are lost or the world comes to an end if we exit the eu, we absolutely must do it or there will be blood in the streets over this matter in the end.
