Hugh Green’s flip flop [perhaps.. – Ed] seems indicative of the way the Lisbon debate is going. Some people simply not voting yes because of the high handed manner in which they’ve been lectured to. Now, after a coherent week of campaigning (whilst we were fretting over a manufactured crisis), he’s changed his mind. And that’s the way the money is going too. Paddy Power is giving 2/1 on a No vote and Betfair 9/4. But according to Ruth Dudley Edwards, it’s really a class thing. If the middle classes are getting minded to vote, then it could be all over for the Noes.
