The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

European Referendum farce

Apparently in the event of a ‘no’ both French and Dutch citizens should vote again until Europe gets the “right answer”, the EU presidency has urged.Luxembourg’s Prime Minister and holder of the EU presidency Jean-Claude Juncker also warned that a French ‘non’ would be a “disaster” for Europe and the whole world.

Glad to see he is a great believer in democracy and letting the people decide!

    The campaigns in France and The Netherlands have thrown up so much ammunition I am going to be very disappointed if we don't have a referendum in the UK.

    Just the quotes of Jacques Chirac would have swung it, let alone this idiot's.

    Do you think following the same argument I could ask for a new ballot where I stood as I think the people may have been mistaken?

    It smacks of absolute arrogance that certain architects of the European project only want democracy to take place if it delivers an answer which is palatable to them.
