VAGUE PROMISES AND DECLARATIONS
Some people may be aware of some vague promises, which are mere smoke screens on issues which people were not overly concerned with anyway, with a couple of meaningless promises, on such issues as maintaining Irelands Commissioner. It must be pointed out that these promises do not equal legally binding guarantees. It should also be stated that declarations do not mean a thing. Declarations carry no legal weight. As far as being legally binding declarations are not worth the paper they are written on and frankly neither do promises. All this aside the issue of a commissioner was well down the list of priorities as to why people voted NO in June 2008.
