No Messing From the Referendum Lobby

As I said some time ago I don't find the debate about whether there should be a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty entirely straightforward so I've found some of the pro-referendum rhetoric a little shrill for my liking.

In some senses this video falls into the same category but I'm posting it because a) it puts the case so powerfully and b) it sums up so accurately this government's attitude not just on the Treaty, but on a whole range of other issues too. The "we know best, you have no choice" mantra runs right through much of what Brown and his Cabinet team do - and I'm still furious about the "body ownership" claim they've staked (see post beneath this one).

Whatever your view on Lisbon, you've got to say that this puts its point across and no mistake !

Hi Womble

You're right it's not straight forward but I'm fed up with the march forward with no choice but to comply. We started with trade and have ended with takeover. The vast quantity of legislation coming from Europe is swamping us with endless new regulations. All our politicians seem to do is jump on the gravy train (Tony Blair for President Yuk!).
