I want a referendum...
On Saturday I went down to Harlow to help the "I want a Referendum" campaign. Harlow is one of only 10 constituencies in the UK that is holding this unofficial referendum. It will ask whether the Government should hold our promised national referendum and thus allow the people to decide whether the EU Constitution is right or wrong.
There was an excellent turnout of supporters - some of us canvassed, some delivered leaflets, and another large group spoke to people in the town centre.
I was impressed by the awareness of local residents on the issues. Many had already voted. There is going to be a mass lobby of parliament on 27th February. I hope there will be a good turnout!
