Isn’t this exciting. I am sitting in Kitty O’Shea’s with a pint (not Guinness which I dislike) anda burger. Guy Verstofstadt is clearly not Irish – he turned up at noon for an Irish party that was supposed to start at noon. Irish parties never start on time.
The result now is not in doubt – a comfortable Yes majority is certain, how big remains to be seen.
The No side concede defeat. Richard Green of Coir has called on Czech President Klaus not to sign the Treaty.
So, it seems that if the Treaty is not finally ratified, we can blame someone else and not the Irish – that is a relief.Author : Jim Murray
