Facing Reality, unlike Some Politicians

The Treaty of Lisbon is ratified so we must move point in holding a referendum on what is a fact. Politicians should not hold to fixed positions but move with the changes and take into account present realities and circumstances. Too many are stuck and live in the past, thinking of what could be/what might have been - not "what is".

Agreed. Jill Evans made the Plaid position quite clear. The party demanded a referendum on the Lisbon treaty, as it did on the constitutional treaty before. That is consistent with the party's principle that power lies with the people.

Compare that with the bizarre British concept of "parliamentary sovereignty". Now the Tories want to enshrine it in a new UK Sovereignty Bill. These people still cling to their 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688 which was made out of fear of Catholicism. Time to move on, folks.
