Confused by Labour's pledge to have a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU?
You are not alone.
Ed Miliband is this morning setting out his party's position on this contentious matter. He will pledge to have a referendum.
Except the conditions which will trigger that are very unlikely to materialise.
So he is effectively pledging NOT to have a referendum.
Which explains some of the confusing headlines you may have read in this morning's newspapers.
His new position is just like his previous one: we won't have a referendum on the European Union unless the EU demands more of a say over what the UK government can or can't do.
That would require a new European treaty. And the direction of travel in Europe right now (particularly for non-members of the euro) is towards autonomy for national governments.
So will we get an in/out referendum under a Labour government? Unlikely.
The reason for spelling out the position today is to allay fears in the business community where David Cameron's pledge to hold a referendum in 2017 has created uncertainty among some investors.
1/2 By his own admission, Ed Miliband says it's unlikely there'll be an in-out referendum on Europe under Labour.
2/2 Only the Conservative Party can guarantee and deliver that in-out referendum.
That 2017 referendum promise (if Mr Cameron is returned to Number 10 and if he has a majority of his own) has made the prospect of an EU exit a reality.
So Mr Miliband's pledge to those business leaders is "you won't have that uncertainty under a Labour government".
But he also knows that message will be very unpopular with voters who - as polls show - would very much like to have a say on Britain's membership of the EU.
That's is how Labour ended up in this confusing place.
Where it will now tell voters on the doorstep that they WILL get a referendum if Ed Miliband is Prime Minister.
Although in reality, they won't.
