It’s not cameron’s contempt for our intelligence that I resent, it’s his indifference to our being aware of his contempt

He reneges on promises of commitment as easily as I scratch an itch. He has claimed that he is committed by his own legislation to hold a referendum on Europe if there is any treaty change. Later this became “significant treaty change”, where it was his option to decide what amounted to being “significant”.

Now Merkel has pulled the rug from under that form of weaselling, by declaring a need for a raft of treaty changes, he has resorted to a flurry of anonymous warnings, to himself, that he must claw back special concessions.

This being another attempt to subvert the need for a referendum by pretending that his opponents are not making such a demand.

That “those who matter” agree that a referendum is unnecessary.

We know that we are not going to get a referendum, that such a possibility will not be discussed, that the media will sit on such a discussion and, worst,  he knows that we know and he knows that he can ignore us, with impunity.

75% of people won’t vote in the May elections and that % will rise, as voters see that how valuable their wishes, needs or wants are.

We are drifting back to Victorian Parliaments.

Places like Wigan are the modern equivalent of a “Rotten Borough”.

How long before Council wards and Parliamentary seats are sold off by local party bosses to the highest bidder?
