Get out of this one Mr Cameron...

"Today, I will give this cast-iron guarantee: If I become PM a Conservative government will hold a referendum on any EU treaty that emerges from these negotiations. No treaty should be ratified without consulting the British people in a referendum." -- David Cameron in the Sun newspaper on September 26th, 2007

When David Cameron made this 'cast-iron guarantee' he of course knew that he would never be put in a position where he would actually have to deliver on it. He knew the Lisbon Treaty would have been ratified before he ever became Prime Minister. Or, he thought he knew.

Because of a tangled web of nonsense it appears the Lisbon Treaty's process of ratification will have to begin all over again and I should imagine when David Cameron heard about this his blood turned to ice and his knees buckled. Some poo may have leaked out also.

Apparently a chunk of the treaty will have to be re-written - something to do with the distribution of MEP's - so once again it will do the rounds of all member states for ratification some time in late June, by which time David Cameron should have been PM for a good seven weeks.

This is fantastic stuff. I can see only two consequences of this; firstly and most likely, Cameron will find some way of not offering us a referendum thus exposing himself as a liar and as enthusiastic for selling out our nation's Sovereignty as Clegg and Brown. Second, he will offer us our referendum and we will of course vote no, as will Ireland and the Czech Republic and maybe other nations and our belief here at VPU that Europe will never ever never be united will be borne out.

This is fantastic news and ought to provide some incredibly uncomfortable times ahead for our new PM. More on this later..

Shit: Cameron yesterday
