EU Constitution/Treaty1/2

category international | eu | opinion/analysis author Friday March 27, 2009 18:27author by Ronoc Report this post to the editors

After being rejected by France and Holland, then renamed to take them out of the equation, then rejected by the Irish. When is the 2nd round taking place for Ireland? Makes me wonder alot why they are trying so hard to push this treaty without listening to the people???

Why are Ireland the only country allowed to vote? Well thanks to a man called Raymond Crotty, Ireland has the chance to vote because this man brought the Government to court to make sure that if the Irish constitution is to be amended then it must go to referendum.

Crotty v. An Taoiseach 1987 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crotty_v._An_Taoiseach

One thing could be that it will give more power to those in power, and as they say power corrupts. Will it give more power to the EU Commission?? What do they do exactly, and what would they care about Ireland?

For sure a complex Treaty that nobody can understand, except some well read and educated people. Even our politicians have admitted not understanding it, so if they dont, why do they want it??? Is there something personal in it for them???

Theres lots of information about this on the net, one website i found quite intersting is www.people.ie. But theres plenty more I just forget them, its been a while since ive been on this topic, so post them please...
