Today I introduce a Bill in the House of Commons that would give the people a direct vote on Britain's membership of the European Union; the European Union Membership (Referendum) Bill.The odds are very much stacked against the forces arguing for democracy and a referendum, but Mr Carswell is a persuasive man.
All three political parties promised us a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty. Yet it never happened.
For thirty years, it's been left to politicians and diplomats to determine our Euro policy. No one under the age of 53 has had the chance to vote in a referendum on it. I think now it's time to let the people decide.
