David Morris MP, Morecambe and Lunesdale

As snivelling little yes men go David Morris, my local MP takes some beating. Is he voting yes or no in today's Commons vote on whether we should get a referendum on EU membership? Well, he's behaving like a man with no conviction or principle by tabling the following amendment:
"This House calls upon the Government to publish a White Paper during the next session of parliament setting out the powers and competences that the Government would seek to repatriate from the EU, to commence a renegotiation of Britain’s relationship with the EU and to put the outcome of those negotiations to a national referendum."
In true Tory style he makes the right noises, but action will come at some point in the future. He's doing Cameron's dirty work by sending a smokescreen across the whole issue today thinking we are all stupid enough to fall for it. Well I'm sorry David, but we're not all as stupid as you.

It gets worse, he really goes into some kind of dreamland on his website when he says:

“I think we should also bear in mind that this is without question the most Eurosceptic Government we've had since the early days of Margaret Thatcher’s term, before the Single European Act 1986 and the shadowing of the Deutschmark. The Prime Minister has pledged to refuse any new powers for Brussels without a referendum and is now working in earnest to repatriate powers to the UK. This is proof that us Eurosceptics are winning the argument, and that if we hold firm we will ensure Britain becomes a sovereign country again.”
I say 'dreamland' because it would be rude to accuse him of making things up wouldn't it?

I wonder what Morris will be doing after the next election? Maybe he'll go back to being a hairdresser.

Well he wasn't very good at that either.
