Lords reject a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

The House of Lords has rejected the Conservative proposal to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty by 62 votes. No doubt we can thank the Lib Dems for this betrayal of our country. Nick Clegg has proved himself once again to be two faced. Clegg ordered his MPs to abstain from the vote in the Commons, but he ordered his Peers to vote against a referendum in the Lords. We have been let down and sold down the river by our elected representatives. It is now down to our Irish cousins to save us from an EU Super State by voting NO in tomorrows referendum.

The vote was lost by 280 -218.

Breaking News: If you are Irish you must read this before voting. Your government has held secret talks in Brussels to get around a 'NO' vote tomorrow.

Even if Ireland comes up trumps and votes no I'm sure it won't be the end of it.

Mrs SP,

Sadly, I'm sure you are correct.

Absolutely right, Mrs SP. They will change the name again and the colour of the dust jacket, and call it the Lollypops Are Awesome Treaty.

Steve, as if we needed any more proof that Nick Clegg is a mendacious little shit?

After the open, and blatant, horse trading over such an important issue as detention without charge (irrespective of which side of the fence you sit on this votes should not be bought that affect our fundamental future freedoms) it suddenly becomes less important whether the duplicitous bastards "representing" us sit this side of the channel or not.

Hopefully the Southern Irish people are less open to bribery than the politicians in the North.

Travis,

If Ireland do vote NO, I'll be getting socially confused.

What a surprise, Clegg's losers hide away when the going gets tough and forget their duty to this country.

The Lib Dems are almost as shameful as Labour.
