So it looks like we are being made vote again in October.
How democratic.
To be fair, it has happened before. Personally, I'm pro-Treaty - though I do feel that certain sections should be altered, if only to win over more Irish people.

I know it happened with Nice.
And we used electronic voting, got a yes vote and then were told that the electronic vote machines were faulty.
That sounds iffy to me.
And don't get me wrong I am pro Europe.
I would be the first to say how great Europe has been for Ireland.
But I feel the no vote awas down to a back lash agains the government and the fact that what was being voted on was not explained to the public.
