Nice Referendum

| No TrackBacks
I object to being threatened and blackmailed to vote "yes" in the forthcoming Nice referendum. I cannot believe that contingency plans or alternatives have not been prepared by the Commission to cover possible Irish rejection. If these plans don't exist then it is high time that they are prepared. One way or another, they should be presented to us as the alternative to "yes". Let's be clear, a "no" result will not lead to the suspension of progress towards enlargement.

I also object to having to vote twice on Nice while citizens in other EU States are not voting even once on this critical issue. In the interests of honesty, transparency, democracy and equality, why doesn't the Commission conduct and publish the results of quasi-referenda for each of the other EU States? This would help place the Irish result in context.
