Emerald Isle Starting to Favor European Union

Oh Ireland, land of my father's father's father, why are you forsaking freedom?

Fight the Lisbon Treaty and you may die; join, and you'll live... at least a while.

(Insert Uilleann Pipes playing "A Nation Once Again".)

And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for a chance, just one chance, to go back and tell your enemies that they may take your lives, but they may never take your freedom!!!

ERIN GO BRAGH! (Gaelic: Ireland Forever.)

(The preceding was largely stolen from William Wallace's speech about Scotland.)

The patronising tone of every report I read about the Lisbon treaty, as the one you linked to demonstrates, is that attitude of "we know what's best for you" and if you're against it then "you don't understand" and need to be educated by publicity efforts.

Because it's not as if "thinking people" would oppose letting Eurocrats take charge of their country, right?

No, of course not!

The thoughtful subject knows the benefits of common, European governance!

These brogue-tongued rabble will soon learn to love and appreciate the fact that they've given up their ... what did they call it?

Oh yes, "sovereignty".

The benefits of European citizenship are far greater than any freedom or sovereignty they could hold on to in their own little island!

Another cup of tea, Governor?

I feel so sorry for the land of my father's ancestors. (Some of them, anyway!)

Aye.
