MP Pleased Referendum Call Rejected

Scilly’s MP will be pleased that calls for a referendum were rejected by MPs last night.

Andrew George says he has always supported the case for an “in or out” referendum, but now is not the time and the backbench proposal is confusing.

The MP says that holding a referendum on UK membership in the EU in the midst of a global financial crisis is dangerous and would seriously damage the national economic interest.

He says the Government should be concentrating its efforts at the moment on working with our European partners to restore stability to the Eurozone.

And if there is ever any such referendum it must be based on a straight “yes or no” question.
