David Cameron said he would allowed the people of the United Kingdom vote on this monstrous statist document. So did labour and they were in power. there may be a chance for HM UK PM to keep this promise. There is a good chance that the UK would vote lisbon down. Unfortunately this is probably not going to happen . The lib dems are eu lovers. Another promise broken. sigh.
is set to be first big test of Coalition
Matthew Elliott of the TaxPayers' Alliance was the first ConservativeHome contributor to raise the prospect of Lisbon needing to be re-ratified. This is what he wrote last month:
"Due to various procedural changes, the Lisbon Treaty is going to have to be ratified by Parliament yet again after the General Election. David Cameron has always been explicit that had he been Prime Minister when the Treaty came forward for ratification, he would have held a referendum. Until now that has simply been a hypothetical situation – but now it is set to become a reality."
