Labour the party of broken promises

April 25, 2009

Despite numerous promises and prominent European leaders stating that the treaty that Gormless Gordon and his chums have signed us up to being essentially the same as what Gormless promised us a referendum on I thought I would contact my MP. Mr Chris Bryant, below is my letter and below that his reply. The sooner this morally inept bunch are out of power the better.

Dear Chris Bryant,

As My Mp I would like to know your stance on the failed promise of the
Labour Government to give the people of the United Kingdom a referendum
on Europe. I wonder on your stance when Labour MP Alice Mahon stated
that part of the reason for her resignation was the governments failure
to live up to it’s promise under the election manifesto.

As I remember all major parties agreed that they would hold a
referendum on something so momentous for everyone in Britain yet we are
refused access to this.

I would also like to point out that as people are getting more and more
frustrated by the Labour establishments failure to deliver on it’s
promises that this may well be a deciding factor in upcoming elections.

The Government keeps telling us that this is nothing like the EU
constitution but other European Leaders have said that this is so. Why
is the Labour party so afraid of giving it’s electorate the chance to
make it’s own mind up

I eagerly await your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Griffiths.

Dear Richard
I’m afraid I disagree with you – and I do not believe we should be
having a referendum, a point I have made for several years now.  I do
not believe that referendums are a proper way of consulting the public
as they undermine the democratic parliamentary process. I know it seems
like nit-picking but our commitment was to a referendum on the
Constitutional Treaty.  This was rejected by two countries and is
therefore no longer being considered.  The rather different Lisbon
Treaty is now before us and I think it is a good deal for Britain.  We
never held referendums on the Maastricht, Amsterdam or Nice Treaties and
I think one would be inappropriate now.
I am sorry to disappoint you yet further.
Yours truly, Chris
