I SHARE Robert Watts’ sense of betrayal at David Cameron’s failure to offer the obvious alternative to a referendum on the now-ratified Lisbon Treaty (Letters).
However, the answer is not UKIP. This is a one issue party which lacks the expertise to address the enormous problems created by this incompetent government.
Not so the Tories. After 13 years in opposition, they are desperate for power. Hence it is essential that we who care about British democracy mobilise public opinion to insist on a Tory manifesto commitment to a referendum. We should lobby our Tory candidate in similar vein.
