Remember that the Irish people had to vote twice on the Lisbon Treaty, because their first vote was ‘wrong’ and NOT in favor of the elitists’ agenda.
Asking the Irish to vote again on the Lisbon treaty is arrogant, insulting and undemocratic
As soon as the Irish people’s ballots were counted in June, their rejection of Lisbon was treated as the “wrong” answer, as if they had been taking part in a multiple-choice maths exam and had failed to work out that 2+2=4. Now, they will be given a chance to sit the exam again, “until [they] come up with the right answer,” says George Galloway, attacking EU elitism. The notion that the Irish “got it wrong” exposes gobsmacking ignorance about democracy in the upper echelons of the EU. The very fact that a majority of Irish people said no to Lisbon made it the “right answer”, true and sovereign and final. “No” really does mean no.
– I’m quitting the Tories for UKIP, says ex-treasurer Lord Hesketh after he loses faith in the party (Daily Mail, Oct. 11, 2011):
A former Tory treasurer has defected from the Conservatives to the UK Independence Party over David Cameron’s handling of Europe.
Lord Hesketh says he lost faith in the party after the Prime Minister reneged on his promise to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, the former Conservative fundraiser said he would now devote his efforts to drumming up funds for UKIP.
Before the general election, Mr Cameron gave a ‘cast iron’ pledge to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.
