TO THE POLLS - AGAIN
After the Lisbon result last year the result from Ireland was hailed by ordinary Europeans many of whom were never allowed to express any opinion on the adoption of the Treaty. The London Times enthused
“ Slainte…Toast them in lager, Sancerre, slivovitz or ouzo but this weekend raise a glass to the Irish. Or, at the very least, acknowledge that by voting “no” to the Lisbon treaty the people of the Irish Republic have brought searing clarity to a process hitherto shrouded in jargon and pushed along by the civil servants who invented it.” Another rejection of Lisbon by Ireland will cause ordinary citizens around the Union to rejoice whilst their governments and the Eurocrats will rage, this democracy thing can be a messy business especially when the people are given their say ! So, as Irish Times columnist Vincent Browne advised in his piece during the week, lets repay the people of Europe for their largess over the years by delivering a resounding verdict tomorrow - 'Vote NO and rejoice !'
