Matthew d'Ancona, writing in tomorrows Sunday Telegraph says that David Cameron has a cunning plan - a punch-up over schools.
Over at the Coffee House, Daniel Korski has a post entitled, 'Lisbon Treaty moves closer, but Tories stay mum' in which he states:
"That will mean that the British Conservatives have to be less mealy-mouthed about their post-referendum strategy; if the treaty is ratified will they try to re-open the document if they win power or let sleeping dogs lie?"
Personally Matthew, I am not that interested in as yet 'secret' cunning plans, I would just like an easily understood, unambigious public statement on the intentions of the next potential Prime Minister and what he intends doing about our membership of the European Union viz-a-viz a referendum should Ireland vote 'Yes' and the treaty is then ratified. Statements of 'We will not let matters rest there' are unacceptable and totally meaningless!
Mind you, the chances of getting a response to this national issue must be zilch, bearing in mind Cameron cannot be bothered to address an issue in his own constituency!*
* Yes - still waiting for a response to the e-mail mentioned in the postscript!
