YIELDING TO DEMOCRACY:

Labour drops opposition to EU referendum (The Guardian, 23 May 2015)

Labour has dropped its opposition to an in/out referendum on EU membership, the party's acting leader has said.

Acting leader Harriet Harman said on Sunday her party would now support David Cameron's planned referendum bill, clearing a path for a UK-wide ballot by the end of 2017.

It marks an about-turn for the party, which had rejected the idea under Ed Miliband's leadership during the general election campaign.
