Does one honestly think the Irish can (or will) stop this?
Oh they can - there is no doubt about it. If they vote no Lisbon is dead.
Will they? Who knows - the yes side appears to be leading strongly, but a lot of folks and a lot of groups are going to use this as a general protest vote. Government officials are running a little scared and are pouring vast resources into the Yes campaing.
Erie couldn't abide London, why should it get along with Brussels?
Brussels has money and the Irish economy is in free fall
Yeup, that was one of London's problems. It didn't wan to spend the money it would take to keep the Irish content.
Don't tell anyone, but there isn't enough money in London or Brussels to do that
Watching returns come in now. It looks like the "No" side has pulled off a huge win and the Lisbon treaty and resulting new European constitution is dead.
I find it fascinating that the only nation in Europe that permitted a democratic vote overwhelmingly rejected this proposal.
If so, good for the Irish!:thumbs:
"This time all countries but Ireland avoided a referendum."
Sounds like the powers that be are determined to "avoid" the will of the people.
Good for Ireland!!!! :applause:
I was really proud of my adopted country. They were threatened and bullied and still rejected the Brussels Bullies
Don't you mean les sprouts des Bruxelles?
Thumbs up for the Irish!
The Irish certainly did well to reject this wretched treaty, but don't think for a moment that the EU will abandon its course. Already the UK government is determined to go ahead with raitifcation having shirked their election promise to let the people decide. Gordon Brown may enjoy his moment is the sun, because his days, politically, are well and truly numbered. Let's hope the Tories are back in before Gordon and the Europhiles have done their worst for our nation.
