The government may try to frighten people into voting in favour of the Lisbon Treaty by scare mongering about the economy. They may claim that a no vote will be bad for the economy. Don’t be fooled by this. The economy is bad enough without Lisbon but it is also bad in those countries which have ratified the treaty. The recession has nothing to do with Lisbon, take the USA not anywhere near Europe. VOTE NO TO LISBON AGAIN
It has now being decided that October 2nd will be the date of the second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.You, the Irish electorate, will be asked to vote for a second time on this Treaty. This treaty has already been rejected by the electorate once in June 2008 but because the vote did not go the way of the Irish government and their puppet masters in Brussels you must vote again. Do NOT be intimidated by lies and deceit from both the Dail and Brussels into voting their way. Vote NO again as this treaty offers the working class nothing, in fact it is fundamentally no different from the first one, short of a couple of very minor changes and promises.In contrast it offers the business classes a considerable amount, not least higher profits at your expense. It has not gone unnoticed that you, the Irish people, have never being consulted on whether you want a re-run of Lisbon, after all you have already rejected the thing once. What do the government not understand about the word NO?, surely they have received a basic education, or have they?
