Interesting piece from The Sunday Telegraph here (Yes, I read it. Know thine enemy, etc? I’d read An Phoblacht too only I don’t want to be on a Special Branch list.) A Yes vote in Ireland will cause chaos in the Tories, because it will force their moderate eurosceptic leadership into a fight with the “Better off out of the EU” crowd. Whereas a No vote will allow them to unite with the Irish No lobby. You know, the people they share so much in common with?
The Tories believe the EU gives workers too many rights. Which is the exact opposite of what the No lobby say, funnily enough. Yet these are the people the No side claim they can negotiate an alternative to Lisbon with?
