Thank you, Dave, for clarifying that

If the lead article in today’s Grauniad is to be believed, then a lot of waverers will have had their minds made up for them….

Boris Johnson today suggested the Tories could offer voters a “consultation” on relations with Europe after it emerged that David Cameron is to rule out a referendum on the Lisbon treaty if the measure is ratified by all 27 members of the EU before next year’s general election in Britain.

For hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Conservative voters, the nuclear option of a vote for UKIP has now become the only realistic choice.

It is abundantly clear that this is now a single issue election. If we are not a free nation state, what else is there?

  1. I’m of the opinion that we should let politicians do what they want. They don’t listen to us. I prefer to keep myself busy with low level anarchy in the belief that it will pay dividends in the long run.

    • I am rapidly arriving at the same conclusion, Madeley.

      What, in your opinion, is an acceptable level of anarchy? Putting sugar in Manuel Barroso’s petrol tank? Taking the piss out of Leon Brittan’s adenoids?Setting up a market stall and selling freshly cooked ortolan with malice aforethought? Singing Ode to Joy at the Opening of Parliament?

  2. I’m always slightly confused by politicians and others who object vociferously to Westminster being run from Brussels, but insist that Edinburgh and Cardiff and Belfast are better off being run from Westminster.

    • Tim, if the Scots, the Northern Irish or the Welsh want to leave the Union, that is their right.

      Given that there is an SNP administration in the Scottish Parliament, Scottish independence is a real possibility, and there will probably come a time when a Catholic majority in the Six Counties may opt for a united Ireland (despite the fact that the Republic doesn’t want them). Paid Cymru is little more than a pressure group.

  3. Awesome blog!

    I thought about starting my own blog too but I’m just too lazy so, I guess Ill just have to keep checking yours out.
