Lisbon Treaty and why we voted No.

leave a comment »

There has been some amazing analysis from the Government during the week, apparently they reckon the main reason people voted No was the fact that they didn’t understand the treaty. Now they needed consultants to tell them this !!

Despite the illegibility of the treaty been made apparent from the outset the Government think they have a excuse to rerun the same treaty. Here’s my take on why Ireland voted No on June 12.

1. A hard fact here for the Yes side is that they lost all the debates and thats despite the highly biased nature of many of them.

2. The Government’s attempt to force a Yes vote got a lot of peoples back up and they frankly did the opposite of what the Government wanted.

3. A vote for No surprises, our beloved leaders didn’t get the blank cheque they wanted.

There isn’t any valid reason why Lisbon should get a rerun except of course to do as Mr Sarkozy tells us.
