  • Will the Republic’s/Ireland’s electorate get the ‘right’ answer this time?

  • An Irish Bedtime Story for all Nice Children and not so Maastricht Adults

    The Happy Family
    Once upon a time there was a family treaty-ing themselves to a visit in Lisbon.
    On the sunny day that it was they decided to go out together.
    Everyone had to agree on what they would do.
    “So”, said Daddy Brusselsprout “Let’s all go for a picnic!”
    “No”, said Aunt Erin, “I don’t want to”.
    Did they then think of something else, that they might indeed agree on?
    Oh yes they did?
    Oh no they didn’t!
    Daddy Brusselsprout asked all the others anyway, isolating Erin, and then asked her if instead, she would like to go with them to the park and eat out of a lunch basket….

    Kids, we’ll finish this story tomorrow, and remember, in the EU yes means yes and no means yes as well!

    If it is rejected again, i wonder when the next referendum will be scheduled.

    You know, to see what we really, really, really think.

    If every European country had a peoples referendeum, the Lisbon Treaty would never be made law.
