The "(European partners) indicated they can be helpful in some respects ... but they're also making it very clear they don't have an interest in re-ratifying or amending the treaty in a substantive way,"

Thus said Irish prime minister Brian Cowen, as recorded by Reuters today, telling his grateful people that Ireland may have to reconsider its rejection of the European Union's "reform treaty".

There have probably been innumerable posts on this forum and blog articles written on this before, but without having the time to review them, I have to ask:

"How do the people of the United Kingdom force a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty?"

Or is just too late..?

All EUwhores should have this behavior thrown in their faces, every time they simper about the EU's virtues.

The utter contempt that the EU has for democracy, once more reveals it's vile face.

My guess is that the weight of disapproval of Ireland (for its NO and then breaking ranks on bank support) within the Brussels heirarchy will quite soon bully Cowen and co. into devising a way of slipping ratification through the Dail and Senate without the need for a referendum. There have been indications of dropping a 2nd referendum in recent Irish newspapers.
The current 'beneficial crisis' gives ample justification for 'saving Ireland and its currency'. Sarkozy has shown how desperate they are to back up the vulnerable Euro by drawing together economic government so that getting the Lisbon constitution ratified asap is vital.
So far I think I have been alone in saying this in letters to the press but would be interested to see the views of 'an irish man' or others close to what might be going on in Dublin. Then we could find out what odds Paddy Power is offering.

This Irish guy is ripe for a Spitting Image doll, bring back SI. Especially considering the Punch and Judy PMQ's.
