Sadly I think it's more likely they'll vote "yes" now...

Let's be honest, most of the electorate (any electorate) are pretty uninformed, and so if someone comes along and says "don't you remember how much better the economy was before we voted "no" then a lot of the people who don't understand how much better it could be now if they weren't tied to the euro, will probably add 2+2 and get -3

Now If I were a real tin-hatter, I'd suggest the Biderbergers knew Ireland would be trouble and made sure their HPI was greater than anyone elses, so they'd be more likely to join a few years back.. sadly they didn't count on the French saying "non" in their first round, thus delaying the project a couple of years and planting the Irish referendum slap in the middle of a downturn..

I think the only hope we have is the brilliant bloody-mindedness of the Irish... I'd love to see a bigger no vote along the lines of "No means no, how many more times do we have to tell you..."

I am hoping that many see the boom and now bust partly as a result of being a member of Europe and the Euro. Will the thinking be "well we were ok before we joined the Euro and had this huge boom and bust"????????????

I hope they vote no again. I pray they vote no again.

They'll probably produce a voting form with just 1 box for YES! (pre-ticked of course...)

Just needs a thumbprint and jobs a goodun'...

the irish are well known for digging their heels in.

They're fully aware this is an attempt at bullying them into submission,and they thought british rule was bad.

The only way they will have a yes vote is if it is rigged.Having not long gained independence from britain I very much doubt they will be willing to jump from the frying pan into the fire.

Good point - I think most Brits who watched the news through the 80s & 90s know how stubborn they can be... the real irony of course, is that's what might actually come to our rescue!

I'll personally buy the whole pub a pint of guiness if they reject it again! - if only to put Cameron on the spot about the UK referendum!

Population went over 4 million a few years ago.

Load of east europeans building houses for ... er, er.

Now they've all gone home along with Dell and other big employers moving east.

Population now closer to 3 million. :ph34r:
