  • Ahh – you illiterate, methinks

  • tykejohnno – your absolutley mad if you think the voters are demanding a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

    I agree with you that the Lib Dems should have stuck with their referendum pledge, but the reason they didn’t and Cameron fudges the issue is that most voters aren’t bothered.

    In anycase, there wouldn’t have been a referendum, however the Lib Dems voted
