Ross Lightyear bids to delay vote, Coalition says buzz off

To infinity . . . and beyond.

No, it's not the entry of Buzz Lightyear into the campaign.

But this does seem to be fence-sitting champion Shane Ross's solution to the referendum.

Ross Lightyear wants the vote postponed, to infinity -- or thereabouts -- until after EU leaders decide on a growth package, anyway.

But this evening the Government will tell him to buzz off with his attempt to pass a law to allow for the referendum to be delayed.

The proposed legislation will be voted against by the coalition.

What excuse will Shane jetpack off to next to avoid saying if he's voting Yes or No?
