Ireland and Lisbon Treaty; keep voting until you give the right answer….again.
The forces of tyranny and endarkening are, yet again, going to drape a veil of “democracy” over their command that a certain answer be given – when deep questions about a people’s sovereignty, and who they will allow to govern their affairs – or not – are posed.
If it was not so serious and threatening, it would be hugely funny, and great harmless political theatre for all to relax to over a G-&-T in the evenings.
Imagine something like “the X Factor” or “Pop Idol” (is it called that?) refusing the result of a telephone poll about who’s become the latest sacrificial victim celebrity, until the programme makers got what they asserted was the “right” winner”?
For all I know, that’s exactly what they do anyway, but at least in this theatre the harm done is nugatory….and it sells papers for Rupert Murdoch (harmless act) or whever the outfit is that owns the “Daily Star” (also harmless.)
