Last year I wrote a thumbnail guide to the Lisbon treaty. Here’s the new version. With extra guarantees and Evel Knievel added for extra roughage, essential oils and minerals, and now with Omega 3*

Enjoy here, and feel free to link or distribute.

*Promise of essential oils, minerals and omega 3 applies only if guide is consumed with multivitamins.

Pro-Lisbon propaganda. Any “guides” written by the NO side? That way I can read both and make up my mind.

Of course it’s pro-Lisbon propaganda. I’m pro-Lisbon!

An Irish Bedtime Story for all Nice Children and not so Maastricht Adults


The Happy Family

Once upon a time there was a family treaty-ing themselves to a visit in Lisbon.
On the sunny day that it was they decided to go out together.
Everyone had to agree on what they would do.
“So”, said Daddy Brusselsprout “Let’s all go for a picnic!”
“No”, said Aunt Erin, “I don’t want to”.
Did they then think of something else, that they might indeed agree on?
Oh yes they did?
Oh no they didn’t!
Daddy Brusselsprout asked all the others anyway, isolating Erin, and then asked her if instead, she would like to go with them to the park and eat out of a lunch basket….

Kids, we’ll finish this story tomorrow, and remember, in the EU yes means yes and no means yes as well!

Excellent piece on the Lisbon Treaty, straight to the points.

The BS from the no side is crazy, spend my time correcting people…
