I AM MYSTIFIED as to why Tony Benn and a few of his fellow Labour MPs continue to press for a referendum on the Maastricht treaty.

More than 40 per cent of voters at the last election blindly supported the party which has progressively wrecked the economy and the manufacturing base of this country. I simply do not believe, therefore, that a sufficiently high proportion of the electorate understands (or is even interested in) the more complicated issues of Maastricht, and hence able to make a rational decision on which way to vote.
