Not really huge.

Sorry to disappoint but this happens every now and then when the political parties here in the UK want to boost their support.

We had promises for a referendum from all three party leaders before the 2001 election. Labour won and went back on the promise.

We had promises for a referendum from all three parties again before the 2005 election. Labour won and again went back on the promise.

In 2009 when David Cameron was made leader of the conservative party he promised a referendum if his party won the 2010 election. They didn't win. But they are the majority in power anyway and again they went back on the promise.

This new promise is meaningless. We won't get a referendum. Our government likes telling us what we want. They don't like us deciding for ourselves.

Our entire system is one big socialist melting pot. None of the parties wants to give up the total control they have over us.

They are currently putting through legislation that allows a court, at the request of an agent of the state, to grant an injunction against anyone over the age of 10 who has engaged or threatens to engage in conduct capable of causing a nuisance or annoyance to a person! It's called 'the antisocial behavioural bill' of course it's the state that decides what anti social behaviour is. Personally I think this law is a smokescreen so they can shut down protests.

They actually want a new law to punish people who might be annoying! Protests are annoying to some people. Let's just get a court to make an injunction against those pesky annoying protestors so they can't protest!

So BS like a referendum is specifically discussed by the establishment and MSM to get us to look the other way from more important issues.

I haven't worked out exactly why they want the country concentrating on this one issue but I'll let you know when I find out.
