I would have dearly loved to hold a referendum on that treaty after a change of government: sadly the ratification of Lisbon by all 27 EU states last autumn made that impossible. But I have always been determined that this flagrant denial of democratic choice to the people of Britain would never happen again.No you wouldn't, you lying sack of shit. All of you top Tory weenies were delighted that Brown forced it through on a Commons vote. The last thing in the world you want is a referendum on any aspect of the EU because you know damned well it would produce a result of outright rejection.
Plus it would split your excuse for a party and you'd lose office - that's what really matters to you, isn't it?
