Ireland's new fight for Home Rule

My friends, first we had the ex-Maoist President of Europe, José Manuel Barroso, telling us that he knew that the United Kingdom was closer to Euro entry than ever before, and he knew this because, as he said:

"I know that the majority are still opposed, but there is a period of consideration underway and the people who matter in Britain are currently thinking about it."

That's right, "the people who matter in Britain".

Now we have my good friend Lord Malloch-Brown, the Government appointed British Foreign Office Minister, explaining who are the people who matter in Europe:

"With 24 countries having approved the treaty, I am not sure whether the voters of Ireland should have a right of veto over the aspirations of all the other people of Europe. I am not sure whether that is, or is not democracy."

So there you go Ireland, you fought for and won independence from British rule but it now seems to have been replaced with rule from Brussels.

Here's hoping sanity prevails in October and, once more, Irish voters kick the EU Commissioners where it hurts.
