Cheers Ireland

Irish Referendum result:
Yes: 752,451 (46.6%)
No: 862,415 (53.4%)
It's not the end of the matter, of course. Our own government plans to push ahead with the ratification process, and I imagine that even as I write various Eurocrats are plotting to force the constitution through, regardless of what the people of Ireland, or anywhere else in Europe, want. But, despite this, the fact remains that today the Irish electorate stuck two fingers up at the EU, and at all those seeking to railroad us all into an undemocratic United States of Europe. And for that we should all be thankful.

Yes, it's a great day for the Irish. But the rats will ratify the Lisbon treaty regardless and the gutless British government will follow suit.
