British Eurosceptics are cock-a-hoop over a decision to hold a parliamentary vote on a referendum on whether the country should leave the European Union. The move is unlikely to please Prime Minister David Cameron, who opposes the referendum.
The Commons Backbench Business Committee will agree to grant a one-day debate on a referendum after parliament returns next week, The Daily Mail has learnt.
David Cameron and William Hague have today said they have no wish to hold a referendum on Europe as MPs are set to discuss whether there should be one.
It was revealed today MPs are set to vote on a referendum before Christmas after a petition with more than 100,000 signatures was submitted calling for the public to be given the chance to decide whether Britain should stay in the EU.
The Home Secretary has backed calls for the Human Rights Act to be scrapped because she claims it hinders the Government's attempts to deport some foreign suspects.
The European convention on Human rights is only related to the EU because some (if not all) EU members are also members of the Council of Europe, the one responsible for the European convention on Human rights.

Well the UK are going to head on a coalition course with the EU, if the Home Secretary has her way. She wants the UK to scrap the European convention on Human rights, claiming it impedes the Home Office from Deporting people from the UK.
Are you sure about that?

Or at least it was under the old rules, they don't apply now, now thanks to Blair everything is superceded by European Law due to the Lisbon Treaty.
