Tory Metcalfe believes only they can deliver referendum on Europe

ED Miliband has effectively confirmed that if Labour are in government after the next election they will not give the British people a say on our membership of the European Union says Stephen Metcalfe.

This admission shows that the only way to get an in-out referendum on Britain’s EU membership is by electing a Conservative government. Only the Conservatives can deliver real change in Europe.

Stephen said: “Our relationship with Europe isn’t working and it needs to change. David Cameron has set out a plan to seek a new settlement for Britain in Europe, and will then let the British people decide in an in-out referendum by the end of 2017.”

“But today Ed Miliband has said that there won’t be a referendum under Labour. The Liberal Democrats won’t have one either and UKIP can’t deliver on their promises.”

“There’s now no doubt that the only way people in South Basildon & East Thurrock can get a say on Britain’s membership of the EU is by voting Conservative.”

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Ed Miliband has made his position crystal clear – there will be no referendum under Labour. Only the Conservatives will guarantee and deliver that referendum. It will only happen if I am Prime Minister.”


  1. The thing is Mr Metcalfe, nobody really believes it. We all remember Dave’s ‘Cast Iron Guarantee.’ Most folk with an ounce of intelligence knows the EU will not repatriate any meaningful powers to the UK, there will not be any new settlement. If people want out of the EU they need only vote Ukip. They stand on a manifesto of leaving the EU so, if by some miracle everybody put aside their partisan allegiances for just one election, no referendum would be required and we would be out in two years.
