Right so it looks like a big fat No and I’m kinda glad that the Irish showed the rest of Europe that we can think for ourselves.
When you think logically about it, it was always going to be a No considering how confused people were. I see the No result as a protest by the Irish people at being so confused and annoyed by the whole thing. The Lisbon Treaty is something that was impossible to vote on. Abortion, Divorce, who is your favorite politician, these are all tangible things you can easily adopt a position on but there were too many grey areas in this treaty to simply say Yes or No. If we had 3 options Yes, No and Don’t Know, the Don’t Know’s would have won a landslide!
On the other hand, hands up who has a creeping feeling that we might just have shot ourselves in the foot!!??
