Former Labour spinner and one time librarian John McTernan has let the cat out of the bag speaking about Europe on the Daily Politics.
JM: I think a referendum is ridiculous.
DP: People want it…
JM: I don’t care if people want it. People want lots of things…
DP: Do you think it will actually happen?
JM: No I don’t, no. I think that a Labour government would not have a referendum.
Guido would wager that McTernan is channelling, accidentally or otherwise, Miliband’s exact thinking there.
