EUobserver / UK conservatives bring referendum into June election campaign

The British Conservatives on Monday (28 June) raised the political stakes ahead of the June European elections by making a referendum on the EU's Lisbon Treaty one of the central themes of their campaign.

Conservative leader David Cameron said voters had the opportunity to make the Labour government's "next U-turn an EU-turn."

The Conservatives are widely expected to win the next UK general election as well as beat Labour in the June elections.

He spoke in front of the party's latest poster depicting prime minister Gordon Brown with the caption saying "Tell Labour you want the referendum they promised. Vote Conservative on the 4th June."

He called the treaty "hugely significant" adding: "It is, by all accounts, a constitution. That is why we are making this such an important issue at these European elections."
