The government’s position on the EU is all over the place. It’s gimmick after gimmick, trying to fool the public that half-baked promises amount to cast-iron guarantees.
First there was the ‘amendment’ to the Queen’s Speech that didn’t offer a referendum – it just merely expressed regret at the lack of an EU vote. Then today we get the draft bill and that’s it. It’s like seeing your payslip and having to wait 4 years to get paid… if at all.
To us this doesn’t take us closer to an EU referendum. Rather it exposes to us the lengths the government will go to keep us in the EU and defer the vote, giving the EU greater opportunity to cause economic hardship to the UK. Enough is enough – we demand a vote now!
