Ed Should Back the In/Out Referendum

A debate in Parliament has been scheduled for the October 27, to discuss whether or not to have an In/Out referendum on the EU. Since all three of the major parties sold out on this promise, a remarkable effort has been made by the likes of the cross-party groups such as the People’s Pledge. If the Liverpool Question Time audience a few weeks back that was openly booing the forty million pounds a day we pour down the EU drain, this could be a tense few weeks. Watch and weep as MPs of all colours line up to tell us that they know best and that such decisions should be taken by them, with the help of the infinite wisdom…

Though we all know that Red Ed is grubby statist at heart and painfully pro-European, he is also a shameless opportunist. If he really wanted to make an impact with ordinary, hard-working, sensible voters he should back the calls for the referendum. It would distance himself from lies of Brown and Blair over the issue and the betrayal of “cast iron” Cameron. What does he have to lose?

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
