Flicking through the channels over a late lunch, I caught Ken Clarke on BBC parliament summing up (I thought quite nicely) why he thought each party had an unjustifiable position on having an EU referendum.
His points were:
The Tories had failed to explain how this needed a referendum when none of the ones they had signed did;
Labour had failed to explain how this was different from the treaty they had promised a referendum on;
The Lib Dems just didn’t have an opinion, and didn’t have a good reason for not having one (having listened to their spokeswoman minutes earlier on another channel, I couldn’t make head or tail of it either.)
He seemed as bored of it all as I am.
