News from the battlefront

The House of Lords have rejected the referendum amendment by 280 votes to 218.

Judgement has been reserved in Stuart Wheeler's legal challenge that is aimed to force the government to hold the referendum as, Mr Wheeler claims, there is a reasonable expectation among the electorate of such an event.

Ireland, the only member state that is holding a referendum, votes tomorrow. So far, it seems neck and neck.
