Press Assoc. - 33 minutes ago

Campaigners for a referendum on the European Union's controversial Lisbon Treaty claim they have overwhelming public support.
The I Want A Referendum Campaign said that in unofficial mini-referendums which it ran in 10 parliamentary constituencies, 88% voted in favour of a full-blown referendum on the treaty.
The campaign said that 152,520 people voted in the polls, of whom 133,251 voted for a referendum.
The announcement of the results came as MPs prepare to vote on Wednesday on whether to hold a referendum for real.
