I KNOW the polling is not complete yet, but early indications are that despite huge pressure from the combined mainstream political parties for a ‘YES’ vote, the nation seems to have given them, and by association Europe, a big Fuck You! as far as the Lisbon Treaty is concerned. Read more

PROTESTS ARE BEING HELDÂ outside 40 Irish embassies this weekend congratulating Ireland on holding a referendum denied to 487 million Europeans. This is because the upcoming Treaty of Lisbon referendum is only being put to the vote in Ireland. Read more

A SURVEY released by the Referendum Commission today shows that – shockingly – approximately 80% of people surveyed do not yet understand what the Lisbon Treaty is about.
This is one of the most important treaties that Ireland has had to consider thus far in relation to European influence over our economic and military affairs,Â it’s due to go to a referendum in just under seven weeks… and yet most Irish people haven’t got a clue what it’s about yet.
It seems that just 5 per cent said they understood the treaty, while 15 per cent answered that they understood it to some extent. A total of 30 per cent did not know the name or subject of the referendum. I suspect, given recent polling on the topic, that the referendum is going to be one of the closest in living memory, considering the current difference between the Yes and No camps is only a few percentage points, and it’s pretty certain that this situation is only continue to change as the voting day looms ever closer.

IT’S TOUGH ENOUGH to keep track of the Eurocrats and their exploits at the best of times, and I must admit I’m as confused as hell about this latest Treaty Of Lisbon, not least of all because of the directed efforts of our so-called government to mislead the population about the treaty itself and, even worse, to try to slip it in under theÂ blanket of confusion caused in the process. It’s just like the Treaty of Nice all over again.
I read an article in the Sunday Business Post over the weekend entitled “What Exactly Are We Reforming In This Treaty?” in which the journo tried to get a copy of the treaty in question in order to understand the issues and what exactly we – as a nation – are being asked to vote on later this year. What he discovered however is that there is a funky clause within this proposed treaty which refers to another treaty, called the “Treaty on the functioning of the European Union” which shall have precedence over the Lisbon Treaty… the only problem is this ‘other’ treaty doesn’t in fact exist. At least not yet. So basically the government can hide anything they want externally to the Lisbon Treaty, but still get us to vote on it… whatever ‘it’ in fact is. Does anyone out there actually know what the hell this treaty is really about?
This is just one more example of how we are being driven to a modern dayÂ Fortress Europe from all angles. Politcally its been happening for quite a while. Economically is how it all started and even legally it’s starting to come together, but the one that worries me the most is the military and defence angle. The whole idea of a common European Defence Force just scares the shit out of me when I think of the muppets in charge of it.
Worse still is news today that the latest idea from Fortress Europe central is proposing to implement a futuristic border defence and monitoring policy incorporating biometric checking (digital fingerprinting) at the border entry points, unmanned low-flying drones patrolling the lengths of the border itself, Satellites and sci-fi sensors placed at strategic locations to monitor movements and of course the inevitable massive databases and enforcementÂ organisationsÂ that follow such a deployment of technology… all to keep undesirables out of Europe.
What’s next? Minefields? Big shark infested trenches?Â Basically they seem to want to create one big happy xenophobic federated entity, a massive private club that you can’t join unless you have the right credentials, a massive military force to back up their political views one big fuck-you border solution for the rest of the word to look at, but not over… any of this sounding familiar to you yet?
