Just watch how our new UKIP “friends” will turn on us if we don’t do what they want.

Just wait and see. If we vote No today, people like me will have to, through gritted teeth admittedly, just accept the result. We didn’t like the last result, but we didn’t question its legitimacy, and we stopped the ratification process.

Now watch what happens if we don’t vote the way UKIP and their Tory headbanger fellow travellers want. Watch how they go from defending “Plucky little Ireland” to questioning the legitimacy of the vote and announcing that the Irish didn’t have the courage to vote No and were frightened and bullied.

Whatever happens today, the Yes side will accept the result. Will UKIP?
