Lisbon Treaty(again)

 I really have to reiterate my disliking of the re-hashed European Constitution/Lisbon Treaty. Although we in Ireland have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to vote, many of our European neighbours haven’t had the same right as us.

The Lisbon Treaty Referendum is far from being a shining beacon of democratic exercise- The Yes campaign is backed by almost all of the major political parties bar Sinn Fein and the Socialist Worker’s Party. The Treaty is basically a re-wording of a European Constitution which nobody seems to want anyway. The EU are doing everything in its power to get what it wants.

I have included a very interesting link from Michael Greenwell which I encourage every Irish person to read before this vote on June 12th.

    Please Irish People, in the name of Europeans peoples , vote NO !

    See the comments below this french article http://www.liberation.fr/actualite/monde/330142.FR.php
    Most of the commentators wish Ireland could vote NO.

    If ever it’d happened, this would be a huge slap in the face of the European Commision technocrats who are completely disconnected from reality. The current way the European Union is designed is mainly in the interest of politicians, media and corporations and definitely not in the interest of the majority of the people.

    If ever Ireland voted YES, Europe would become the poodle-puppet of the USA, specially into military domains.

    Please, be wise, vote NO and do not fear the pressure of the press and of politicians.

    The Ulster Unionists had the right idea on this one; NO.
    What’s wrong with this whole thing is not what’s actually in it but the fact that they’re sneaking it past the people. To make it worse the (just about) veiled threats from politicians with a flimsy grasp on the whole democracy thing. I thought the people were sovereign; obviously no more.
