Reports from Brussels coming in suggest that Ireland’s political elite are allowing their arms to be twisted by the EU into ignoring the “No!” vote in the referendum and having another one. This comes as absolutely no surprise – the undemocratic nature of the EU project has always been manifest. It has a semblance of voting but the outcome is as pre-determined as a Soviet-era party congress. On the rare occasions when the project comes off the rails, nothing, not even the will of the people will stop it.
Irish citizens were the only people in Europe allowed to express their democratic will. They said “NO!” The EU’s dirty ratifiers won’t accept that answer.
