I know the majority of you will readily recognise the smiling face above, but for the few like me who don't have a clue who owns this delighted face, may I inform you that it is Europe minister David Lidington.
The Government will announce plans for a 'referendum lock' on any future surrendering of British powers to the EU the Telegraph is keen to point out.
The amendment, which could be law by next year, will allow for a vote if there is 'any transfer of powers away from the UK and towards the centre', according to a Whitehall source.
Interesting choice of words there. 'Centre'. So our politicians acknowledge Westminster is nothing more than a branch office of the EU and as for a 'referendum lock', what a waste of money. There little of value left to surrender to the 'Centre' and Westminster will ensure there's even less by the time this comes onto the statute books. Yet millions will be spent on this useless piece of legislation, while gas and electricity charges continue to rise and the militant union leaders call for protestors to sit in the middle of motorways.
Who said the 80s were bad?
