The mutiny spreads as MPs call for referendum on the EU

We hope.

Cameron aides may quit to join rebellion on EU referendum
Downing Street is warned that five ministerial aides could quit if a three-line whip is imposed
Ed Miliband will order Labour MPs to oppose vote, but Labour face divisions too as a senior MP vows to defy the order

Perhaps a few MPs will resist the pressure of the whips. All the fine leaders who promised a referendum - that would be Cameron and Clegg - Miliband is too wet behind the ears to have promised much yet - are reneging.

Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson looks to be standing in the gap in the hedge: 'I will vote in favour of the motion and in so doing, I will very likely relinquish my position [as a government minister]. . .this is a question of putting country and constituency first'.

By the way, how do you like the wording of the proposed referendum - would you like to stay married to the EU or divorce or try some sort counseling which keeps Britain on the hook or go out for curry? Geez.
