David Cameron under pressure as the Lisbon Treaty is waved through

Despite the fact that David Cameron promised UK voters a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, whether it was voted through before a possible change in government are not, he has this evening backtracked and suggested it would be difficult to rewrite the situation if as expected it is waved through in the short term. The only obstacle that was remaining was a legal challenge in Czechoslovakia which has now being thrown out, leaving a free run to ratify the treaty and bring Europe closer together.

This is perhaps the worst case scenario for David Cameron with many would-be Tory voters suggesting they may look elsewhere if he discards his promise to allow UK voters a referendum on the issue. To David Cameron's credit he does seem to be taking something of a sensible approach to the issue with a suggestion that he will work from the inside to protect UK interests although unfortunately this is a promise we have heard all too often in the past only to be disappointed with the outcome.

Unfortunately for Gordon Brown this is not a subject upon which we can attack David Cameron because ultimately Gordon Brown, an unelected prime minister, he is pushing through the Lisbon Treaty despite the fact that UK voters demanded a referendum.
