Quelle surprise

The Lib Dems have just announced that they have abandoned their 'in or out' referendum pledge on Britain's relationship with the EU.

No surprise, because of course this was always a ruse to try to hide the fact they reneged on their 2005 manifesto commitment to a referendum on the EU Constitution.

Any party that invokes a three line whip on abstaining can't be taken seriously.

How's this for arrogance though:

ex-leader Sir Menzies Campbell said there was no "public appetite" for a vote now that the treaty was ratified.

This gulf between the political classes and the voting public cannot last forever.
