EU Treaty Could Prompt Biggest Rebellion

According to the Telegraph the vote on a referendum over the EU constitreaty could see the biggest rebellion yet against Gordon Brown. With Nick Clegg’s call for Lib Dems to abstain looking bizarre (Iain Dale’s take is here) and Lib Dems also likely to rebel it looks like a close victory for the government, but certainly one that will scare them.

Hopefully showing the strength of feeling for a referendum will get the Conservatives to offer one after ratification on EU withdrawal even if we can’t win a vote now. It happens today so fingers crossed!



  1. Labour’s whip is gonna flay the skin from party politics today 🙂
