Lib Dems have not changed; Views of the North.

IN VIEW of the current news of David Cameron's veto on the European takeover of our financial decisions and the opting out of decision making by the Liberals, history should have forewarned us.

Six years ago we had a referendum in the North East on a proposal for a Regional Assembly when each and every area in the region voted overwhelmingly to reject it to the tune of 78% "no" votes. This was despite Messrs Blair, Brown, Prescott and Kennedy standing shoulder to shoulder supporting this devolutionary fraud. The Liberals have not changed.

Would the Liberals be prepared to have another referendum to see what the people think? LES GRAHAM, Hexham, Northumberland
