According to Brown, F##k the Irish!
The government has defeated a last ditch attempt to delay the ratification of the EU Treaty for four months. Conservative peers had pressed for the ratification process to be postponed until the response of EU leaders to the Irish referendum "No" vote was clear. But the move by Tory foreign affairs spokesman Lord Howell of Guildford was defeated by 277 votes to 184.
