All aboard: Now that Labour has decided to support a referendum on Europe, the 'pro' camp needs to get its act together

As well she might, Labour’s acting leader, Harriet Harman, looked a bit sheepish on The Andrew Marr Show as she executed her U-turn on the Europe referendum. After all, as a loyal deputy to Ed Miliband, she has spent the past few months wandering around the country in a pink van telling us it would be a disaster. Her reason for this change of policy was that Labour wouldn’t be able to stop the Conservatives getting the legislation through Parliament anyway. Unspoken subtext: “So why bother?” That does not bode well for the spirited, principled opposition the country expects from Ms Harman’s party. She and Mr Miliband argued that a referendum would create uncertainty and damage private investment, and so it will.
