Peter Mandelson will today call for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union. The crisis-hit Eurozone will only survive if it operates more as ‘a single political entity’ with its own president and national MPs sitting within the EU, the architect of New Labour will say.
But the staunchly pro-Europe Lord Mandelson will admit that further EU integration cannot be foisted on to the British public without an in/out referendum. He will say that the European mandate secured by the Heath government in the 1970s ‘belongs to another time and another generation’. ‘I believe a fresh referendum on this will be necessary because the political parties cannot reconcile their own differences and come to a final conclusion on their own, and nor should they,’ he will say.
Now don't let this fool you. If the slimy corrupt toad Mandelson starts saying we need a referendum, then that means hes got the backing of the EU Bilderburgers to fix the vote. There used to be a well known saying pre WW2 that we can adapt for this purpose:
"Trust a snake before a Jew, a Jew before an Arab, and an Arab before an Armenian, but never trust Peter Mandelson".
