The Independence of the UK rests with the Irish Vote

Vote NO.JPG


An article in the FT today by Tony Barber and John Murray Brown in Dublin had this to say:

European Union leaders will urge a prompt end to almost a decade of debilitating, inward-looking debates over institutional reform if the result of Ireland’s referendum on the EU’s Lisbon treaty confirms on Saturday that voters have approved the charter at the second time of asking.

A Yes vote, predicted by all opinion polls in advance of Friday’s referendum, will redouble pressure from Brussels and EU national capitals on Vaclav Klaus, the Eurosceptic Czech president, to sign the treaty and remove the last important obstacle to its implementation early next year.


As an Englishman I'm gutted that the independence of my country now depends on people other than Englishmen. Should the Irish vote Yes to this Treaty then Britain will not get the referendum they were promised and will become a mere region of the European Union. A union that is so corrupt that Deloitte's, their accountants have been unable to sign off the accounts as audited for the last the ten years. The Irish voted No when first asked so they have to have another vote and will keep voting until the EU get the results that they need. How sad is that!

The Dutch and the French have already voted No when confronted with the new European constitution so the EU camouflages it now as a treaty and does not give the Dutch or the French the opportunity to reject it at the ballot box.

So, if you think politics stinks where you live then spare a thought for us on the eve of this impending disaster.

They voted Yes so I guess we can expect Tony Blair to be President of Europe shortly.

Your sounding pretty weak in the knees and no I won't spare the thought- the Irish will vote for themselves- if the outcome screws the British- buck up. The fact that the worlds debtor nations have put the bill on their subjects
with hardly a voice in opposition for years is the cross
we all bear. Learn to grin and bear it like the Irish..don't riot like the Greeks- it will bring on marshall law. Your chances of constructive progress will go from slim to none.
Frankly I don't understand how the Irish vote commits the English to a treaty, but I don't doubt your premise.
