Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The last Conservative Liberal coalition attempted it - at the insistence of the lib dems - but the effort was sabotaged by the Conservatives and opposed by Labour as it challenged their two party duopoly. I will leave it to Helen and others here closer to the action to comment on the campaigns, but to the outsider it just seemed like another successful attempt by the establishment to dupe the rubes...

The UK experience of running referenda really isn't that good... A lack of political awareness and education allied to the dominance of the Oligarch controlled media and a supine BBC doesn't help.
