So Ireland have tried to save us from the EU at the last minute. The only country to be given a vote has voted no, it sounds as if Gordon Brown will still press ahead with our own ratification of the treaty. Why? Because he knows that the EU will have a work round to allow them to ignore Ireland just like they ignored France and Holland.
Welcome to our lives as humble citizens of the EU super state, no say in our own affairs, a pretend parliament with pretend consultation of member states. I used to think we should remain in the EU now I believe the only way is OUT.
p.s. Doubtless Gordon will tell us he continues with the ratification because "it's the right thing to do". huh!
