Shepway Lib Dems - Spinning Here!

This story on the Shepway Lib Dem website couldn't go without a brief mention. As you'd expect from Cllr "Pravda" Prater it's not exactly the truth, whole truth and nothing but the truth. Shepway Conservatives called for a referendum on the EU Constitution masquerading as a Treaty. That's the position clearly supported by the Conservatives at all levels, from David Cameron to the vast majority of ordinary members like me.

What the Lib Dems proposed, was a referendum on continued membership of the EU, in an attempt to stifle debate about the EU Constitution which is currently being foisted upon all British and European Citizens without so much as a "by your leave" courtesy of an unholy alliance between Labour, the Lib Dems and the rest of the Liberal-Left leadership of Europe.

The Conservative position nationally and locally is entirely consistent. Nationally, the Lib Dems oppose a referendum on the EU Constitution, despite their election pledge to hold one, probably because they know they'd lose. Perhaps Cllr Prater would care to explain how, by voting for a referendum on the EU constitution locally but opposing it nationally, the Lib Dems are being consistent?
