Listen again: Dr Victoria Honeyman on the EU referendum

Dr Victoria Honeyman comments on the EU referendum rebellion on BBC Radio Leeds following yesterday's vote on whether we should see a referendum on Britain's membership in the EU.

Although the three leading parties advised MPs to vote against the referendum, it is reported between 70 to 100 of these rebelled and were in favour of a public vote.

Dr Honeyman, Lecturer in British Politics comments on the demand for a referendum, the anti-EU attitudes in Britain and the implications for David Cameron on the Conservative rebellion.
