"We are saying any future change to EU treaties, however minor, will be subject to a full Act of Parliament.Yeah right Mr Liddington. Why am I not convinced?
"Any extension of EU competencies, (such as) a decision like joining the euro, would have by law to go with a referendum. There would be no wriggle-room for the Government.
Please note that "any future change to EU treaties, however minor, will be subject to a full Act of Parliament."
So what. This is not any future changes will be subject to a referendum is it. And with your vast payroll vote, any future changes can be whipped through with the support of her Majesty's opposition who agree with you on maintaining the EU status quo.
Thus when the Treaty changed last year in the light of the Bail out, there was a heavily whipped vote. But the people did not get their say.
And you still keep for yourself the right to decide what is, and what isn't "extension of competencies".
I am sorry but I, and the majority in the country don't trust you or your government on this. And more, you know it.
The wriggle room you mention, is that the one with the Elephant in it?
