The ever readable Slugger O’Toole points out the glaring flaw in UNITE’s call for a No vote to Lisbon here.
Whatever your opinion on it, you have to admit that NAMA has gotten the political juices flowing again. The threat of a government collapse, a snap general election, and an issue of massive national importance which has cleft the republic in twain.
