Why the U turn?
Tony's U turn on the Referendum has been perplexing me.
1) He needed to take the heat out of the Tories who were going to run with it in the Euro elections . So good reason to announce holding one.
2) He won't win the referendum, and he doesn't pick fights he doesn't believe he can win.
So either he is a fool who thinks the public will buy him being pretty reasonable sort of guy and back him or it is like the Euro referendum. We still haven't had that one either!
I bet it isn't going to happen. Either the rest of the Europolitcos will scupper it as last time, or it gets so changed that the UK Parliament turns it down. Either way no need for a referendum and Tony holds the moral highground.
