Ireland – the only country in Europe who have allowed their people a say on the Lisbon Treaty in a referendum – has voted no. I am delighted. If the Treaty can not be passed in Ireland I am even more certain it would have been defeated here in the UK. I am extremely disappointed at the reaction of the Government and the Euro Chiefs in Brussels who have said that they are going to press ahead with ratification. Just what part of the word “No” do they not understand.
