Sarkozy: Ireland needs to vote on Lisbon again


www.rte.ie

Ireland will have to hold a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, French President Nicolas Sarkozy has said.

Mr Sarkozy made the remarks to deputies at a meeting in his office earlier today.

UMP party deputies reported that Mr Sarkozy said: \\\'The Irish will have to vote again\\\' after the Treaty was rejected last month.

alightly off topic , but the Poles ` position ` on this treaty is being rather misrepresented here :


There panicing because poland wont ratify the treaty unless Ireland does..


the polish parliamet has actually approved ratification - but thier president has not signed it

his [ president Kaczynski's exact reasoning is ] :


"For the moment, the question of the treaty is pointless,"


and the czech republic has NOT ratified it at all - and thier senate currently seems oposed to doing so

source

they are a far bigger stumbling block than poland - as in theory president Kaczynski is obliged to sign ` at some point ` whereas the czechs can also veto it - even if the irish are forced to accept

Didn't half see this coming a mile away...
That stupid Sarcozy!! What the f*@k does he even have to do with the EU? Apart from being president of France.. He does nothing but push the boundaries of totalitarianism in the EU, stir trouble in the Middle east by blindly backing Israel at every turn and keep the working classes in his own country down.

Democracy?? That twat doesn't even know the meaning of the word.
If we do have to vote again, i guarantee it'll be rigged.. it will be a rerun of the electronic Nice 2nd vote farce.

Sarcozy was the main force pushing the Poles to ratify, the Polish leader folded about two weeks ago.

What is Sarcozy's deal??

Sarcozy the 'ex' Mossad agent? what could be his deal? well lets see.... He takes Europe twoards the illuminati single state and a facist disctatorship and gets a little sniffter of a reward at the end of his time maybe? and if he doesn't do as he is told he gets the JFK treatment.

Its no wonder Russia is getting a bit annoyed and starting to push troops and aircraft back into the western edges of its territory. They see where this is going thats for sure. Some even say that this socialist state is their doing....

A dark and twisted game is being played thats for sure. As for a second vote? it will be rigged.

here we go, this is becoming a bit of a habit. mrs doyle for taoiseach, "go on, are you sure you won't have a bit of treaty, go on, go on, go on, go on." don't know who are bigger muppets, them for being spineless or us for not taking them all out and lining them up against a wall.

Now remember, the Crois Mhic Lionnáin lads made life a living misery for the British Army and had some real dedicated people fighting their cause. They fought against an occupation as they saw it, now are they going to have to fight another occupation?

I wonder if European troops start rolling about after a rigged election will they once again have to take arms and lay some slap down? This is getting silly - How naive do they think they are in ireland? they know a rigged votes on the way.

What?

As I understand it, the Irish were asked to vote yes or no on this subject, and voted no. Sarkosy did not get the response he wanted from the Irish, and so is now calling for another vote to try and get the response he wants.

Where are the revolts coming in here?

a rigged vote would be...eh...difficult with counting officers, though not impossible. i wonder how long it'll be before they start mumbling about trying to foist those electronic stations on us again.

if we vote no again i wonder what will happen.

What I heard on the radio yesterday was Ireland could approve the treaty after MANY amendments. After all if only 3% of the people who voted no change their opinion, it will be 50/50.
