Nick Clegg has been denying that the Lisbon treaty warrants a referendum as it is not as significant as the Maastricht treaty.
But one of his former Lib Dem colleagues from the European Parliament, Andrew Duff MEP, states in THIS document (page 13) "in historic terms it is at least as significant as the Treaty of Maastricht".
Who is telling the truth?
And talking of telling the truth, Gordon Brown needs to take a truth pill.In PMQs today he again alleged that Boris Johnson would cut transport and Police budgets. Boris's people issued a further denial within minutes...
"The first time Gordon Brown claimed I would be making cuts in the police in London, he misled the House and I demanded an apology. He and his cronies have continued to spout this nonsense. I made it clear when I launched my candidacy that I believed we could make savings within some areas to improve services for Londoners and I stand by that. As my 36 page crime manifesto shows, by shaving money from publicity budgets, I will not only match Ken Livingstone’s increase in officers but go much further to make Londoners feel safer. And on Transport, I have found similar savings within Transport for London to fund policies which will help Londoners get around easier. Gordon Brown’s refusal to answer questions on his Mayor and instead make inaccurate claims about my proposals are all part of an attempt to cover up the fact that his Mayor is mired in maladministration and clearly out of touch.”
