A new poll for the Sunday Business Post in Ireland reveals that 58% are in favour of the Lisbon Treaty, 28% are against and 14% are undecided.

In my view, the risk of a ‘No’ will be greater after the European Elections than before. The European elections are likely to return a more fragmented and Eurosceptic Parliament. The campaign will have a strong anti-European bias.

The referendum is likely to be successful, provided that the Government run a serious campaign.

  1. Let’s hope the Irish rejects the Treaty.

    Which citizen of the EU accepts half democracy with the executive as the legislator in the Council of Ministers?

    You have to be fool to give the executive a legislative power.

  2. Let’s hope that Irish people will say yes…
    But after that we will have to wait about the Czech ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, which is still a problem…!
    And of course you don’t have to be fool to accept the Treaty, it’s time for the EU to go one step further.

  3. It doesn’t seem to matter what you are going to vote. Your government will do the same as mine and as the French. We voted no and we didn’t get a second chance. The just went ahead without us.

    A second referendum about the same subject is always anti-democratic. It is meant to alter the result of the real referendum, just like other fraud is meant to change undesired outcomes of elections.

    Well, since the Irish seem to be the last EU citizens to have some of their democratic rights intact, you might want to use it. Even the people that voted yes the first time should vote no this time. Thats the only appropiate reaction to an obvious insult by an anti-democratic EU not to respect your first referendum.
