Pressure is mounting for the Irish to vote again on the Lisbon Treaty
Robert the Bruce of Scotland has a lot to answer for, it was he after all who said: “If you don’t succeed the first time, try, try, and try again”, which is a motto the European Union’s undemocratic leaders have taken to heart.
Whenever the is a vote taken which does not give the EU the result it desired, it always insists the electorate must have got it wrong (how can they possibly oppose the EU) and they have to do it again and get it right the next time. According to the EU the French did not vote against the EU constitution, they were unhappy with their government and gave the wrong result, similar things were said in Holland too.
But what of the Irish when they voted no to the Lisbon Treaty, which everyone on the planet knows is the EU constitution - but we are not supposed to call it that. How could the Irish be so ungrateful after receiving the EU’s largess for all those years? (British and German taxpayers money really) With this in mind and once again its a case of: ‘Surely the Irish have got it wrong?’
There is much talk within the EU’s corridors of corruption about the Irish having another referendum next year to give them a chance to repent their sins against the EU and its Lisbon Treaty. Within the EU the people of Eire have created another Irish problem, and the French and Germans are bringing pressure to bear on the Irish leaders to sort it out. An internal EU briefing paper written by a group of French officials called: ‘Le Amis du Traite de Lisbonne’, or Friends of the Lisbon Treaty, guarantees that Ireland would not lose its European Commissioner and “declarations” to preserve its views on neutrality, abortion and taxation, which were high profile topics during the Irish referendum campaign.
The EU is desperate to get the Irish to agree to the Lisbon Treaty by June 2009, if is not there are fears within the EU that there will be no more Lisbon Treaty and in the European elections the Eurosceptics will triumph.
It’s not just the Irish who are proving to be a thorn in the side of the EU, the architect of the EU constitution, Valery Giscard d’Estaing, at the beginning of September accused Britain of ‘hampering’ the creation of the EU superstate.
