    If nothing else convinces them to vote No, I hope the majority of the Irish read the Times, and see this:

    What a disaster it would be for Europe as a whole, let alone Britain if this man gets the position of President.

    I concur.

    Heard this on the radio this morning, can only presume that once Brown is ousted from number 10 he'll be hot on Tony's heels as his successor.

    Like a bad smell, the pair of them. Rendered pig fat, and dog do on your shoe.

    Amen to that.

    However, I suspect that the Irish people have been convinced that the EU will be their life preserver again if they vote yes :(

    Sorry, no can do! All the polls suggest a win for yes this time around.

    Well what is the point in them promising a referendum if Ireland votes yes?

    They can't do anything about it whilst Labour are in power.

    Why not? The treaty needs unanimous support. Without the support of the UK, it can't go ahead, whatever Ireland votes.

    No, but they can promise a referendum should they win power?

    Be too late at that point, at least without creating a major diplomatic fuss. Everything'll be signed in triplicate.

    Why vote on something that concerns every citizen in the entire country?

    I can't see a reason! I'm off to waste more money[/TB&GB]

    If Ireland votes no today the treaty can't go ahead, so what would the point in the UK having a vote in 7-8 months time?

    I have to say the thought of that smarmy, grinning **** Blair as 'our' unelected president makes me feel physically sick.

    How anyone internationally thinks he has the credentials is beyond me.

    His departure and legacy from the UK is not rosy. He lied to start a war being a rather large thorn in his side surely, maybe not.

    Not the person we need to take us forward from the last decade.

    Oh and I hope that the Irish stand firm and reject it again.

    I believe it's already been stated that there won't be a 3rd one if this one is rejected, and if it is rejected we better hope we get one when the Tories almost certainly get in to make sure of it.

    However, it's looking more likely this time around that Ireland will say yes.

    However, if this occurs we may yet have a chance.

    Even if they actually vote no the result will be rigged.

    There is too much at stake to let a few Irish people derail the EU superstate and its aim for total dictatorship.

    Yes, all the governments support it because they want to be made redundant. Engage brain before you type.
