Commenting on the news that the Stuart Wheeler has won permission to launch a High Court challenge over the Government's refusal to hold a referendum on the EU Reform Treaty, Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague, said:Rt Hon William Hague MP
"The Government must now put the bill bringing the renamed EU Constitution into force on hold. It was already plain that this deeply unpopular Government had no moral right to impose this Treaty on Britain without any democratic mandate. Now the courts are looking at the legality of denying a referendum. Under these circumstances it would be shockingly arrogant for ministers to carry on as normal.
"After today Gordon Brown may well be scared of what the voters have to say but he cannot wriggle out of his solemn election promise of a referendum. Getting that promise honoured would be a great day for democracy."
- THE EUSSR WOULD NOT ONLY SEVERELY DIMINISH IF NOT CRIPPLE DEMOCRACY IN EUROPE; IT WOULD BE A HUGE SETBACK FOR THE WEST.
- I PRAY THE UK AND/OR IRELAND KILL THE LISBON TREATY, AND SAVE THE PEOPLE OF EUROPE FROM THE TRANSNATIONAL POSTMODERN SOCIALISTS TRYING TO RAM THE EUSSR DOWN THEIR THROATS.
