I’ve said previously that if the government knew where the interweb would go they’d have banned it. On the day the Prime Mentalist launches the Labour Party manifesto, let’s remind ourselves what he recently told a court:

The pledge to hold a referendum on the EU constitution was in the Labour manifesto of 2005. In 2008 a member of UKIP took McRuin to court when he broke this pledge, citing breach of contract. Speaking through his barrister, he told the court “manifesto pledges are not subject to legitimate expectation”.

  1. OMG, you mean you can’t believe what most politicians say?????

    We need a cleansing of both our nations governments where novel things like Honor, Honesty, and Duty mean something other than Fluff for campaigns

  2. What an idiotic court case. After the French and Dutch voted no, the EU constitution was dead and most countries which had not already voted on it abandoned plans to do so.

    Should there be a referendum on whether the UK should join the League of Nations?

  3. None of the political parties’ manifesto pledges seem to mean sweet Fulham Athletic any more. It’s so depressing.

    My thoughts/voting intentions are basically in line with Andrew’s stated view: I’m voting Conservative this time, not because I think Cameron is the greatest, but because the most important first thing that must be done at all costs is to get Labour out. And I would vote BNP/NF/Monster Raving Loony/Stalin/Hitler/Zanu-PF….anyone at all, if it looked like their candidate stood the most likely chance of achieving that goal in my constituency.

  4. This is just one of 26 manifesto pledges that Labour tosser and his Politburo broke.

  5. Fewsorange, your post is idiotic. The fact that the Dutch and the French voted against the EU Constitution meant nothing because the Lisbon Pact was imposed on each of these countries without a referendum. The ‘Constitution’ was therefore not ever, ever, ever "dead in the water". If that had been so, then there would have been no further ‘constitutional’ binds imposed on those countries which rejected it.

  6. The fact that the Dutch and the French voted against the EU Constitution meant nothing because the Lisbon Pact was imposed on each of these countries without a referendum.

    So if the UK had voted against the EU Constitution would that also have meant nothing?
