one has to wonder whether David Cameron actually studied the English language, the meaning of words and the use thereof.
Courtesy of England Expects, David Cameron replying to a question from Nigel Farage:
"I made a policy of having a referendum on the Lisbon treaty, and if the Lisbon treaty had been still extant at the time of government, we would have had a referendum on the Lisbon treaty. I don't believe Britain should leave the European Union, but I do believe there are powers we can retrieve from Europe to have a better balance."
From the Concise Oxford Dictionary:
"Extant: adj: (especially of a document) still existing, surviving [L. exstare exstant]"
This from a man who wishes to sign agreements on behalf of our nation, a man who cannot understand the meaning of a simple legal term? Sheesh!
So as England Expects states: when is the referendum then, Mr. Cameron?
