A non-story at the BBC today.
One of the final opinion polls ahead of Ireland’s referendum next week on whether to ratify the EU fiscal treaty suggests it is likely to be a ‘yes’ vote. BBC
Why are they even asking?
Back in 2008 there was a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty in Ireland. The politicians asked the populace what they wanted and the people said “No.” The politicians response was “Oh dear, you got the answer wrong. Let’s do it again shall we?”. Huge time and money spent making the people say Yes even when they’d said No. And why the hell did people in Ireland give in so bloody easily? So there is no point in asking in any polls because if the gravy train doesn’t get the answer it wants it’ll ask it again.
