So Cameron’s promise of a referendum on EU membership turns out to be a sham. Surprised? I shouldn’t be, after all, he is a spineless Tory. What was promised as a way out of this shambles, has become a teaser, and a bribe to vote Conservative in the next election. Shallow, manipulative politics, blatantly cocking a snook at the voters.
We are expected to wait five years for even the chance of a vote, and then only if there is a Conservative Government, and presumably, only if Cameron is still the leader. It seems clear that he expects neither to be the case, and does not want to be remembered, just yet, as the man who took Britain out of Europe. Like someone who wants to play in goal, and still score the penalties, he is someone scared to commit to one camp, and one purpose. Appeasing all sides of the Political spectrum is just not possible, with a subject as emotive as EU membership. He has to brave enough to nail his colours to a mast, and be responsible for the outcome.
What else could I have expected of the despicable Tories? I knew in my heart, that it was too good to be true. I now face the possibility that I might never live to see a time when we are no longer a part of this Euro-Capitalist conglomeration. At least the politicians are consistent; cowards and liars all.
