A big step forward for the NWO, one of the countries that had opposed the idea of an EU constitution has approved the watered down Lisbon treaty.

BBC News

Voters appear to have backed the EU's Lisbon Treaty in the Republic of Ireland's crucial second referendum.

Early returns are showing clear majorities for the "Yes" campaign - just 18 months after voters rejected the treaty first time round.

The treaty, aimed at streamlining decision-making in the 27-nation EU, cannot take effect unless all member states ratify it.

Ireland's foreign minister predicted a convincing win for the "Yes" campaign.

"I am delighted for the country," Micheal Martin told Irish radio on Saturday.

The official result is expected late on Saturday afternoon.

Some key points:


-Creates new post of EU president (President of European Council)

-New post of High Representative for Foreign Affairs

-More decisions by majority vote, rather than unanimity

-Ratified by all member states except Czech Republic, Ireland and Poland

-Only Ireland is holding referendum on it

-Took a decade of negotiations

-Was intended to take effect in January 2009

But TPTB know that major economic problems in Czech Rep and Poland will see them reluctantly agree.

the Conservative Party in the UK are making noises about a referendum, but I'm certain that will change if they get into power.

Not good news for all those opposed to a One World Government.
