In an attack on democracy that would make Robert Mugabe blush, Brian Cowen has confirmed that he is ready to ignore the result of the June referendum and ask the Irish people to vote for the same treaty we've already rejected.
Don't believe any of the lies about a modified treaty or concessions being made, not one word or comma can be added to the Lisbon Treaty without it having to be re-ratified by every other EU member state, so talk of compromises and concessions are just meaningless lies to try and hoodwink the Irish electorate into voting for a treaty that will hand over our sovereignty to the proposed EU Empire.
From the moment it was clear that Ireland had rejected the treaty the traitors in Leinster House along with their European counterparts made no secret of the fact that the No vote would not stop the Lisbon Treaty coming into effect, that it was merely a stumbling block and did not mean the end of the treaty as it should have done. Since June they have been plotting and conspiring behind closed doors on how to ignore the will of the people, exposing EU democracy for the sham that it is.
In a not-so-thinly veiled attack on the Irish people EU leaders blamed our rejection of Lisbon on "intellectual mediocrity", they discussed different ways to “cuddle and pamper” us into accepting the treaty ahead of another vote. Stating that Ireland should be put in an “untenable position”, with French MEP Alain Lamassoure adding that the Irish people needed to be made aware of the “consequences” of a second refusal.
You only have to look at the comments of those who want the treaty forced through to see that they are people who couldn't care less about the wishes of the people they claim to represent and that handing even more power to these people would be bad not only for Ireland but for Europe as a whole. From the Brussels Journal:
Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen said that it did not matter if people had not read the treaty (he had not read it either, he admitted) and did not understand it because they should trust their elected leaders.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy said: “There will be no treaty at all if we had a referendum in France.”
Former French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing said: “The difference between the original Constitution and the present Lisbon Treaty is one of approach, rather than content ... the proposals in the original constitutional treaty are practically unchanged. They have simply been dispersed through old treaties in the form of amendments. Why this subtle change? Above all, to head off any threat of referenda by avoiding any form of constitutional vocabulary ... But lift the lid and look in the toolbox: all the same innovative and effective tools are there, just as they were carefully crafted by the European Convention.”
D’Estaing said: “Public opinion will be led to adopt, without knowing it, the proposals that we dare not present to them directly ... All the earlier proposals will be in the new text, but will be hidden and disguised in some way.”
D’Estaing said: The approach “is to keep a part of the innovations of the constitutional treaty and to split them into several texts in order to make them less visible. The most innovative dispositions would pass as simple amendments of the Maastricht and Nice treaties. The technical improvements would be gathered in an innocuous treaty. The whole would be addressed to Parliaments, which would decide with separate votes. The public opinion would therefore unknowingly adopt the dispositions that it would not accept if presented directly.”
Irish Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern said: “The substance of what was agreed in 2004 has been retained. Really, what is gone is the term ‘constitution’.”
Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker said: “Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?”
Belgian Foreign Minister Karel de Gucht said: “The aim of the Constitutional Treaty was to be more readable; the aim of this [Lisbon] treaty is to be unreadable… The Constitution aimed to be clear, whereas this treaty had to be unclear. It is a success.”
European Commission President José Manuel Barroso said: “Sometimes I like to compare the EU as a creation to the organization of empires. We have the dimension of Empire but there is a great difference. Empires were usually made with force with a center imposing diktat, a will on the others. Now what we have is the first non-imperial empire.”
Barroso said: “If a referendum had to be held on the creation of the European Community or the introduction of the euro, do you think these would have passed?”
Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero said: “We have not let a single substantial point of the Constitutional Treaty go...”
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano said: “Those who are anti-EU are terrorists. It is psychological terrorism to suggest the specter of a European superstate.”
Perhaps the most chilling statement of the lot was made by French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner who threatened that if the Lisbon Treaty does not come into being “the first victims would be the Irish." The last time the people of Ireland were asked to accept a treaty with such a threat hanging over their heads was in 1921 when Lloyd George said that failure to accept the Anglo-Irish treaty would result in "immediate and terrible war".
There may well be consequences if we reject Lisbon again, but the consequences of bowing down to the EU fascists would be far worse. The soil of Ireland is stained with the blood of our patriot dead who fought for a free and independent Ireland. Tone, Emmet, the Fenians, the martyrs of 1916 - they fought and died to free us from the British Empire, it is now our duty to ensure that we do not surrender what little sovereignty we have left to the European Empire.

According to the Sunday Times Polish workers are leaving Ireland at a rate of 140 a day, with 15,000 returning home since July. Having bled this country dry for the past four years, taking €2bn out of the Irish economy this year alone, they have decided to jump ship and return home to live like kings, fat and rich having leeched off the success of the Celtic Tiger (RIP) to the detriment of the people of Ireland.
When Poland joined the EU in 2004 we were one of only three nations to to place no restrictions on the citizens of the new accession states. Instead of taking action to protect the Irish worker the traitors in Leinster House opened the floodgates and welcomed hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals to come to our shores, all in the name of 'competitiveness'.
None of these 'New Irish' as they have been Christened by the left wing media had to undergo any sort of background checks, so that on top of our own criminals we have now imported rapists, thieves and murderers from all over eastern Europe.
But the most damaging repercussion of this unrestricted immigration has been the effect it has had on the working class people of Ireland. The Poles and the other 'New Irish' came here with only one thing on their mind - money. Happy to take any job going on whatever terms they were offered they are a Capitalists dream. Consequently they have undercut the Irish worker and we have been forced to either accept the same low pay and conditions or be out of a job. If you have a family to support and a mortgage to pay it is not possible to survive on minimum wage, yet this is the situation that many Irish workers have been forced into.
Now that our economy is in tatters and the boom years are over the Polish workers are saying do widzenia to Ireland and going home at last, bellies full and bank balances healthy. The people of Ireland don't say good bye, we say good riddance.
Prime Minister in waiting David Cameron yesterday reiterated his passionate support for the 6 counties remaining under British occupation.
In his speech at the annual UUP conference he spoke of his 'deep commitment' to the Union. Cameron stated that the 6 counties have a 'shared destiny' with Britain.
What happened to Britain having no 'selfish, strategic, political or economic interest in Northern Ireland'? Those who cheer lead the GFA and who believe that die hard Unionists can be talked into voting for a united Ireland are living in cloud cuckoo land. Unionism is as strong as ever.
The Provisional Republican movement has been pacified and humiliated to the point that Sinn Féin, having abandoned principle after principle, are now content to play second fiddle to Unionists in a regional British parliament. Whereas the traitors in Leinster House were quite happy to sign away the Free State's constitutional claim to the 6 counties, British politicians like Cameron continue to rally around the Union, leaving us in no doubt that they see the partition and occupation of our country as set in stone.
