Britons get a referendum on a referendum on Europe
A UKIP petition demanding a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU has been launched in the biggest-ever call to arms on the right to have a say over Europe. 2 million leaflets are currently being printed in support of the petition, designed to keep the pressure on the ‘traditional’ parties after all broke a clear manifesto commitment to hold a referendum on the European Constitution (renamed as the Lisbon Treaty).
UKIP Leader Nigel Farage said: “This is a real chance for the people of Great Britain to show that they are sick of being lied to and that they want a say over our continuing membership of the European Union. We want to send a message loud and clear to the next Government of Great Britain that the people are not prepared to be ignored and demand that they be given their say.”
