The REAL issue at stake in Euro debate

There has been an awful lot of noise but very little light on the Euro referendum issue. A lot of the public support the Lib Dem idea of a referendum on whether or not to stay in the EU. But it all masks what the debate is actually supposed to be about: the Treaty of Lisbon. Which of course serves the interests of both Tories and Labour since they are, as always, split on the subject.

Most people know very little about it. But it will give MORE power to the people we elect - which is not what most of the media would have you believe. Sceptics should back the Treaty because, for the first time, it sets out a process whereby countries can LEAVE the EU - which has not been possible before.

Read more in the "True Guide to Treaty of Lisbon" (a 14 page PDF) written by Chelmsford's Lib Dem Euro MP Andrew Duff.
