Labour's Way : Vote Yes or Europe Will Literally Explode

 

Michael Taft Reviews the scary tales of the Yes Side :

The Government is doing everything possible to prevent a debate on the Fiscal Treaty.  The tactic employed is as old as government itself – fear.  It is hard to keep track with all the plagues and maladies that will be visited on this fair land if the people dare vote no in the referendum:  we will be isolated, we will be turned into Greece, hospitals and schools will close down, public sector workers won’t get paid, the elderly will have to beg for alms on the cathedral steps.
