The corruption of some Politicians
is what gives the remaining 10%
a bad name!


Irish prepare to vote on Lisbon treaty

The first vote in Ireland’s referendum on the Lisbon treaty was cast yesterday in Barry Edgar Pilcher’s living room in Raven Cottage on Inishfree — and it went to the “no” camp.

Residents of the island, a 15-minute trip by fishing boat from the northwestern coast in Donegal, were allowed to get the EU referendum under way two days before the rest of the country in case their tiny communities were cut off by bad weather on polling day.

Mr Pilcher, 66, a London-born artist and musician, serenaded locals on his saxophone as they voted. “I voted ‘no’ because I think we shouldn’t give our power away,” Mr Pilcher said. Turnout was high, with five of Inishfree’s seven eligible voters casting a ballot. Patsy Dan Rodgers, the “king” of neighbouring Tory Island, said most of the 150 islanders would vote “no”.

At the end of three weeks of often acrimonious campaigning, a broadcast moratorium came into effect at midnight forbidding further discussion of the pros and cons of the repackaged European constitution before the polling stations close tomorrow evening.

Voters are going to the polls in gloomy mood. Ireland became the first eurozone country to fall into recession a year ago; domestic scandals over state profligacy and accusations of incompetence have dogged the Government and, yesterday, thousands marched through Dublin to protest against cuts recommended by a government-appointed auditor.

Brian Cowen, the Taoiseach, made his final pitch to voters yesterday. He tried to explain why it was essential for Ireland to overturn the “no” that it recorded in a referendum in June last year but, according to the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Eamon Gilmore, many undecided voters were veering towards rejecting the treaty.

Last time the “no” vote prevailed with 53.4 per cent, a result that stunned Europe and plunged the European Union’s expansion project into crisis. Recent opinion polls show a slow growth in the “no” vote — but put the “yes” camp still comfortably ahead with 55 per cent.

All through the campaign, the Irish have had to listen to two competing messages of doom as to the effect of the Lisbon treaty, which aims to streamline decision-making in the expanded 27-member Union. Today is their last chance to digest the two versions before making a final choice.

The embattled Mr Cowen, whose opinion poll rating is the lowest ever recorded for an Irish leader, warned that a second rejection would damage efforts to rebuild Ireland’s collapsed economy. Calling the second referendum “one of the most important decisions in our recent history”, he said voters faced a clear choice in which the stakes could not be higher. “Will we move forward together with Europe or will we take an uncharted and more uncertain road?” he asked.

“Only with a ‘yes’ will we ensure investor confidence in Ireland, protect our influence in vital economic decisions and reform Europe so that it is more dynamic and effective.

“I understand that this is a time when many people are worried and are feeling the impact of the crisis. To them I say: the future is in your hands.

“By voting ‘yes’ you will be helping Ireland achieve economic recovery. By voting ‘yes’ you will be sending a powerful signal to job creators and investors that our country is and will remain at the heart of Europe.” In response to newspaper cartoonists who have been lampooning the exercise by portraying voters preparing for next year’s vote on the treaty, he said: “There won’t be a Lisbon Three.”

Mr Cowen’s appeal was rejected by Declan Ganley, of the anti-Lisbon group Libertas. “The Irish people can choose between two visions of economic recovery,” Mr Ganley said. “On the one hand, we can choose to be scared and vote out of fear. That is what our Government wants. They have spent millions of our own money telling us to be scared. “On the other hand, we can reject our failed political establishment, reject the failed policies of the past that Lisbon enshrines, and set ourselves on the path to growth by removing the real roadblock to recovery: Brian Cowen.

“The only job Lisbon will save is Brian Cowen’s. There is nothing in this treaty which aids recovery. There is nothing that creates jobs. In fact, by handing away more and more power to an establishment that doesn’t want to listen, and won’t have to listen after Lisbon, we would be making a mistake that we would regret for generations.”

Mr Cowen bowed to pressure from President Sarkozy to rerun the referendum after securing guarantees on key issues of Irish concern.

The Republic — which accounts for 1 per cent of the Union’s 500 million population — is the only country constitutionally bound to hold a referendum, because it modifies the constitution. A total of 24 member states have ratified the treaty, with Poland and the Czech Republic the only other countries yet to do so. If Ireland does record a “yes” when all the votes have been counted by Saturday afternoon there will be rapid efforts in Brussels to complete the treaty’s ratification — and introduce new features such as a European president.

I am still predicting a gain of 2 to 2.5% for the NO vote as I believe the dignity and self respect of the Irish people will jeject the betrayal by their pucillanimous self seeking politicians and the theft of money from the Public Purse in an attempt to buy a yes vote.

I have a greater belief in the integrity of the Irish than even many of them have it seems and clearly I value their freedom more highly than their corrupt politicians and their cronies!
So let us hope for a minimum of the votes cast that count being 55.9% NO to subjugation under The Lisbon Constitutional Treaty as a vassal Region having so recently emerged as a self determining Free democracy less than a Century ago!

Sadly from midnight tomorrow there is the danger that The Irish Free State will no longer be Free!

Turn EVERY Election into a Referendum for Liberty, Sovereignty, Justice & Home Rule
Write on YOUR Ballot Paper in EVERY election:


What is the exit and survival plan for Ireland & the United Kingdoms to maximise on the many benefits of leaving The EU. It is the DUTY of our Politicians and Snivil Cervants to ensure the continuity, liberty and right to self determination of our peoples they have a DUTY to protect against crime and secure both our food and our borders.
NONE of these DUTIES has a single Irish or British politician upheld for 40 years. They have drawn their incomes fraudulently and dishonesty.

Politicians are failing to tell the truth, but so are almost all wanabe Politicians, the MSM and Snivil Cervants.

The fact is that even if EVERY Irish & British MEP wanted change in The EU it would achieve NOTHING.

Every single British & Irish Politician, of EVERY Party, elected since before we joined the EUropean Common Market, has promised to change The EU's CAP & CFP - In 40 Years they have achieved absolutely NOTHING!

To try to put a value on OUR Freedom is as futile as floccipaucinihilipilification and as odious as the metissage of our societies, as we rummage in the ashes of our ancestors dreams, sacrifices and achievements, the flotsam of our hopes and the jetsam of our lives, consider the Country and Anglosphere which we leave our children and the future, with shame!

I SUGGEST – since there is clearly no political party of repute, advocating or campaigning for withdrawal of Ireland or the United Kingdoms from the EU and restoration of our independent sovereign, democracy, with Justice & the right to self determination in a free country. Deny the self seeking & meaningless wanabe MEPs the 'Mythical Mandate' for which they clamour. Diktat is imposed from The EU but Law should be made in our own Parliaments, for our Countries & our Peoples.
