The Irish voted ‘no’ to the Lisbon Treaty and this was the wrong answer, so they were made to vote again.
Doesn’t that tell anyone anything about the EU?
The Lisbon Treaty used to be called the ‘EU Constitution’ but the EU had to change the name because ‘constitution’ made it sound like a constitution.
It was good they did.
Changing the name meant many countries in the EU didn’t have to hold the elections they promised. The British government promised us a referedum on the EU Constitution, when the EU changed the name, they reneged on this. It had a different name, therefore it was a different thing.
Doesn’t this tell anyone anything about the British political class?
It is quite depressing to hear what I thought were intelligent persons repeating, parrot-fashion, platitudinous rubbish they’ve heard on television, or seen on a front-page, as if it were their own opinion.
They stroke their chins and say “we need access to the single market. I’m voting in” because they like other people to think they have considered opinions
Then, they go back to watching Eastenders, feeling content because they’ve “had their say”.
Liberty and freedom are wasted on some people.
These human-sheep don’t know the difference between a common market and the single market. The difference is the same as the difference between a public park and a large prison excercise yard.
Now, the political class is all over the media getting into circulation the idea that nothing whatsoever is going happen because of this result, and that nothing will change.
This makes ignoring the result much easier because the public are being primed to expect nothing. The significance of the leave victory is being played-down.
All the suited politicians need to do is keep a straight face and not sweat too much.
I hope those who voted ‘remain’ will now be able to see what the EU actually is, and feel a modicum of shame for their stupidity and gullability.
It’s unlikely, however.
Somebody who didn’t know what the EU was after the Irish incident will NEVER be able to see what is in front of their faces.
