Re: Irish Referendum Coming up ...

Previously when we voted again, the EU added protocols to treaties to satisfy the Irish voters. We weren't just voting again on the same treaty without change. That's a total myth that's endlessly repeated by Brexiteers and others who want to make out that the whole thing was anti-democratic.

If we vote it down and they then address the problems and put it to me again, I might change my mind. Until then, it's getting a big fat NO!
