EU Rhymes With "SCREW YOU"

No surprises here. Plans are already being made to 'do-over' the Irish referendum, amidst whining from political leaders about the 'ungrateful Irish' (sour milk?) and what appears to be a general lack of enthusiasm amongst the general public across Europe for any increase in EU powers.

LifesiteNews reports:

Many long time observers of the ways and wiles of the European Union, however, predicted that a rejection by the Irish would be far from the end of the Lisbon Treaty. As wit and commentator Gerald Warner wrote for his Daily Telegraph weblog, "We have been here before."

"In 2001 the Irish electorate rejected a similar proposal, the Treaty of Nice, by 54 percent to 46 percent. A second referendum was quickly held and provided the desired outcome, a yes to Nice by 63 percent to 37 percent.

'Silly people!' Warner writes, 'It was the wrong answer. So the following year, like a recalcitrant schoolboy being dragged by the ear back to his desk to do his unsatisfactory homework over again, the Irish electorate was made to repeat the exercise.'

'In fact the Eurofascists will press on regardless, despite rejection now by France, the Netherlands and Ireland. The Protocols of the Elders of Brussels will be enforced.'"
