It appears that you Yes voters who were brainwashed and browbeaten in the last campaign have been duped again.
Remember when we got the gaurentee that our taxes were up to the Dail and the Irish nation to decide.
Well it appears that that gaurentee is not worth the paper its written on.
A whitehouse aide came out with ''Never waste a good crices.
Now the EU are ''suggesting'' (it will soon change to insisting) that national govts submit their budgets for "" Peer Review'' before thay are even approved by the national parliments., They are going to envoke a little known section in the Lisbon Treaty for this to happen.
Really it all makes perfect scense. You can't have a truly integrated Europe without standard taxes throughout Europe, Ireland anfd those useless gombeens in the Dail will be forced to accede to the Demands of Brussels on the pretext that we are saving the Euro.
I can see two outcomes.
(1) The EU will implode within the next 5 years, due to financial strains etc.
(2) We willl see the birth of a superstate of which Ireland will be only a county on the edge of the superstate.
in this scanario, the EU will be viewed with suspision by Russia to the North, China to the east and the US to the West. The EU was initially set up to prevent a further European war but if history has tought us anything it is one thing Superstates can't help but to flex its military muscle which leads to conflict.
