Cameron is right to create uncertainty over EU Treaty

There are a number of reports, mostly edited versions of this one from PA, in which the Labour Party is accusing David Cameron of creating uncertainty over the line the Conservatives are taking over the EU treaty, namely that they may still have a referendum even after the treaty has been ratified and brought into law.

In my opinion David Cameron is absolutely right to do this. We were told we would get a referendum on the constitution. Renaming it as a treaty doesn't get around the fact that we are being denied what we were promised. If the Treaty comes into law as a result of that deceit it is absolutely right that we should be able to take a retrospective view and decide whether it is in our best interests.

It is also the case that Parliament would have the right under our own laws to rescind the Act which brings the constitution into effect in the UK.
