Libs would not enter into coalition in any case now.

I strongly suspect that 2020 will be minority Tory government with no second party to back them up. Maybe back to 300-310 seats, UKIP at zero,...

Sadly not I suspect.

The majority of people who vote yes in the referendum will not be emotionally invested in the subject to anything like the same degree as those who vote no. I think the latter...

I'm just glad there will finally be a referendum. Hopefully put it to bed once and for all. There should absolutely not be another one should bloody UKIP not get the answer it wants.

Hardly.

This is a defeat for the backbenchers ... it's the frontbenchers who are in revolt, having assumed they had a get-out of this policy by virtue of continued coalition with the LDs.

Why should any other political party take the hit for a Tory/UKIP obsession?

Work out who voted out and, in the event of a high cost being metered out on the UK, increase their taxes to pay for it. If there's no cost they have nothing to fear.

Now that Labour do not need to take responsibility for the political and economic mess resulting from an 'out' vote, there is no longer a reason to oppose the referendum. Sit back and let the Tory...

I'm more concerned about who is going to cut through Farage's lies and deceit, to be honest. Cutting through Cameron's lies is a given.

It is certainly the case that their main reason for existing is deleted, and they then have to stand on their other 'principles', such as they are.

Best result for UKIP is a very narrow defeat in...

Do you have any respect for the 5% or so of the electorate who remained loyal to the party on principle, even in the seats where they stood no chance of winning?

Depressingly true.

There are masses of very good reasons for leaving the EU, and a wealth of opportunities, and the converse is also true, but this will all be missed in the rush to come out with an...

I'm struggling to match this response with the sentence you highlighted. i4u wasn't saying you were the source.



Unnamed source, therefore not reliable by your measure.

With great difficulty.

This referendum should consist of two questions:

1) Do you think the UK should remain in the EU, and

2) Do you think the UK should remain in the EEA.

Both EFTA and the EU are constituent parts of the EEA. EFTA membership is essentially EU membership without the seats in the EU parliament.
