Earlier today I spoke to Naoise Nunn, once (and possibly again) of this parish. These days he’s executive director of Libertas, a think tank and pressure group that seems to be successfully applying some attention to the issue of the Lisbon referendum due to take place on June 12th. He’s been travelling recently in the north and west of the Republic and reports that they are getting positive responses from people who whilst happy with the EU and the benefits it has brought them, are expressing increasing disquiet about some of the ways in which Irish sovereignty might be compromised. Not least in term of it’s tax policy. More over at Brassneck.
