Judges decide against referendum

Stuart Wheeler says he has "high hopes" of winning an appeal against a High Court decision to oppose his bid for a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.

Two judges rejected the millionaire's claim that there was a "legitimate expectation" of a public vote.

I didn’t think he would win his case. There is no law saying that the government is banned from lying to the public so I hate to say it but the judges had no reason to vote against them even though I would have loved to have seen it.

We just have to hope that the judges of the Court of Appeal care more about the country than the law.
