Only 1 in 15 Tory MPs support in/out EU referendum

MPs voted yesterday on an amendment to the ConDem's EU Bill - described by the Conservative MP, Douglas Carswell, as "a bogus EU bill" - that would trigger an in/out referendum on EU membership when we, the electorate, voted against an EU power grab.

Little Willy says vote
Conservative and they'll
make the hurting stop.
Scouts honour.
The chances of us getting a referendum under the EU Bill are somewhere between zero and um ... zero ... so how many of the 306 Conservative MPs do you think backed up their false claim of being a eurosceptic party by voting in favour of the amendment?  Half?  Three quarters?  No, it was 20.  Twenty Conservative MPs out of 306 who pretend to be representing a eurosceptic party at election time voted to give us a referendum on EU membership when given the chance.

The Conservative Party is not a eurosceptic party.  Their MPs and MEPs have all gone native.  Tory supporters put their faith in the likes of Douglas Carswell and the other handful of eurosceptic Conservatives in Westminster but they're frustrated at every turn by the sheer weight of europhile MPs and sycophants who have surrendered themselves entirely to the whip and will vote how they are told.  They put their faith in Roger Helmer and Dan Hannan, not realising that the token eurosceptic Conservative MEPs are there to attract votes and deflect attention away from the fact that the Tories are firmly in the pro-EU camp, along with Labour and the Lib Dems.  The Conservative and Unionist Party is, in reality, the Conservative and European Unionist Party despite the vague rhetoric from Little Willy about controlling the EU's constant power grabs.

Millions of people were led to believe they were voting for a eurosceptic party when they put their X next to the Conservative Party candidate - they were conned into voting for ever closer union, ever increasing power for the EU and ever rising bills for the privilege.
