David Cameron’s Masterclass In Deception: The EU Referendum Con

by | 8th, September 2011

WANT to know why we don’t trust politicians and biased newspapers? Well, on September 11, 2007, The Daily Telegraph’s Toby Helm told readers:

David Cameron plans to force EU referendum – David Cameron is planning a Parliamentary ambush over the new EU treaty in an attempt to force Gordon Brown to grant the British people a referendum.

Four years on and after a general election that sees David Cameron installed as Prime Minsters, we learn:

“I want us to be influential in Europe about the things that matter to our national interest – promoting the single market, pushing forward for growth, making sure we get lower energy prices.
“Those are things we will be fighting for but I don’t see the case for an in out referendum on Europe. We are in Europe, we have got to make it work for us.”

Do you see how the people’s champion for democracy became a champion for what “I” want?
