    Default Lisbon Treaty - EI Poll

    Rather than engage in the debate myself I am interested to assess the voting pattern of those on this site.

    Unlike the actual referendum which is exclusive to the Irish Republic, please feel free regardless of nationality to post a vote on this subject.

    I have decided to make this poll private. If you wish to tell us how you voted please do so with a subsequent post. It does not matter if you include a reason for doing so.

    Default Lets be very clear about this

    Lets be very very clear, a yes vote is a must

    Last time around, we were uneducated, didnt bother to read it and were riding high on the cresty waves of the celtic tiger. Now, it's quite clear that Ireland is different. Theres less confidence and we need to see the bigger picture

    Declan Ganly is awol and we now have some important concessions, remarkable for a small island.

    Yes vote promoted

    Yes vote in the bag

    Default If you voted No the last time then you must vote No again

    Nothing has changed except the commissioner for every country.

    Other than that its a vote for a federal europe or a us of sorts.

    The myth that we will get kicked out of the EU is bollox.
    The treaty has to be ratified by all 27 counteries or it does not come into effect its as simple as that.

    No banning etc.

    What has the EU done for us ?
    Build a few fucking motorways and two Luas lines.

    What have we lost by EU membership.

    Being overrun by foreign workers who have taken our jobs during the boom at a lesser pay rate and are now bleeding the country dry claiming social welfare, child allowance for kids that dont even live in Ireland.
    Now the Intel's etc are moving to the east european states for lesser cost.

    Don't kid yourself kids the EU is set up for big business to fuck us little people.

    VOTE NO

    This is a big problem that still hasn't been sorted since the last time. People who don't know what it's about will vote no...........

    The 2 main reasons why people will vote no is because they don't know what it's all about and they'll vote no just to stick it to the government........... Not good reasons.......

    I'm not saying that the treaty is a good idea but poeple should vote because they are making an informed decision not because they don't understand it of to piss off those who are in power or want it to go through..........

    The government had failed to explain the treaty to the public.......... many in power don't understand it themselves I'd say..........

    oh dear god,
    surely if you dont know whats sumtin about its best not to vote at all.i know thats a wasted vote and all that,but blind voting is ridiculous.voting just to get one over the goverment is stupid aswell,would voting for the best interests of the country not be a little more worthwhile.
    Have to say i wasnt completely with it last time but i think this time round the goverment have done nearly everything they can to make people understand this,there was a leaflet posted to every house in the country,they cant make people read it,its up to them now.
    Your right luther a lot of people voted no just because they didnt understand,strange conclusion,why noy yes because i dont understand,same thing

    Nonsense. We are endorsing a European Federal Reserve by making the ECB the official bank of the union. This is a private bank serving private interest NOT European interests and not Irish interests. In practice this is already the way things are but I am loathe to endorse it in statute by voting yes. I think section 6 of the treaty covers this and last time out neither the yes nor no camps even covered this issue, which I found to be quite worrying.

    The recession is an economic fabrication, I pray that the people will not be bludgeoned into voting yes by this sham we are suffering. Its high time we kicked up a stink and got ourselves back on the right track
