David Cameron stalls on Europe

David Cameron bravely stuck his neck out by, er…, insisting that the Tories “could only have one policy at once”. Not multitaskers then:

David Cameron has refused to give an unequivocal commitment to a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, after Irish voters delivered a 67% “Yes” vote.

The Tory leader promised a vote on the treaty should his party win the election – but only if it had not been ratified by all EU member states.

He said the Tories “could only have one policy at once”, and he did not want to prejudice decisions in other countries. (BBC)
