"Irish voters have backed the Lisbon Treaty referendum at a second time of asking, the country's foreign affairs minister has said.

Early tallies from count centres across Ireland suggested voters have accepted the charter, following a massive swing to the "Yes" side.

Minister Micheal Martin said: "I'm delighted for the country. It looks like a convincing win for the Yes side.

"It's good for Ireland", he told RTE Radio.

Polling stations closed at 10pm yesterday and a final verdict is expected by late afternoon.

After the shock rejection of the Treaty, which aims to modernise and streamline the EU, in a referendum in June last year, this time supporters are confident of victory.

Times have changed: with higher unemployment and the Irish economy in meltdown, people here are far more open to the argument that the European Union is good for this country.

Despite the government here being deeply unpopular, which might attract a substantial protest vote, the arguments are not obscured this time by issues like abortion and Ireland's neutrality.

The implications of the vote are huge.

If the Irish reject the treaty again it will be dead in the water.

However if as expected they vote "Yes", the Poles and the Czechs are likely to follow suit and the treaty will be ratified.

That could put enormous pressure on the Conservative leader David Cameron, who has promised to hold a similar referendum in Britain if he wins the next election.

On a lighter note, "No" supporters say that if they lose they will demand a replay.

They say the score will be 1-1 and it would only be fair to have a decider - another referendum!

:: There have been suggestions in the European Parliament that ex-British prime minister Tony Blair could be given the job of EU president which would be created if the Lisbon Treaty comes into force.

The Tories have issued a warning to European leaders not to appoint Mr Blair.

Shadow foreign secretary William Hague said the Conservatives were prepared to lobby European capitals in an effort to block the appointment."


ouch... oh dear... now what?

they said no and were given another chance, now yes...

probably due to the unemployment and all that... bad news for us... great news for the elites and powers that be with the EU

I doubt that will happen. This isn't like the World Series or Rock-Paper-Scissors.

well! they're not asleep, they voted NO from the beginning and that was the result that should stand, but the corrupted NWO arranged for a second voting now when Ireland is in big deep crap, economically.

So you could more or less say that they blackmailed Ireland to say yes for financial & economical reasons.

I doubt it, it’s only the Czech President who is considering putting the treat through the court first (he is ANTI-EU). Not the Czech people, most Czechs hate the guy.

This is incorrect. The EU doesn't have a president. The job that Blair will take is council chairman (perhaps president of the EU council?) I'm surprised that they would print that - that way. Very misleading.
