Is Ed Miliband Paving The Way For An EU Referendum?
On 11th March, Natascha Engel addressed the Dronfield Labour Party Discussion Group on the topic "Why We Need A Referendum On Europe". After two months, the matter has now moved to the top of Labour's Agenda. Ed Ball has indicated that Labour might adopt such an approach sometime in the future and now Ed Miliband has placed Jon Cruddas in charge of Labour's policy development. Jon is a known supporter of the call for a referendum. Along with Natascha Engel, he voted for the proposal after debate in the Commons recently - although it lost out in the short run. See this article on the matter in the Daily Telegraph.
