I hope that we can introduce some civility into this debate. The shadow Minister really should raise the level of the debate. My hon. Friend Richard Fuller raised a valid point: it ill behoves the right hon. Gentleman to lecture us on referendums on far-reaching constitutional issues when his party not only reneged on a solemn promise made at the ballot box to have a referendum on the Lisbon treaty, but guillotined the relevant Bill, forcing it through this House.
