Anybody who takes a huff attack and vows to vote UKIP or BNP because we now won’t have a referendum on the already ratified Lisbon Treaty obviously doesn’t care about the thousands of good reasons to vote Conservative and force these morons out.
Note: regular readers of Slugger O’Toole will call this entire article whataboutery. It is. I’m predicting a possible future here, so don’t hate me if you don’t like the scenario I depict. Please don’t cry, and certainly don’t have nightmares. I had three strange conversations about Lisbon today, from three sides of the debate around [...]
Vote No. They threatened you They treated you like a fool They pretended it was a new document They didn’t listen to you the first time Your sovereignty, and the sovereignty of other nations is eroded by the treaty Whilst I’ve tried to think of all the things that make me proud to be a [...]

This post will look at some of the Lisbon Treaty referendum posters from two groups, Cóir and ‘We Belong’ critically assessing some of them and then making fun of the rest.
The most amusing thing about the nascent referendum campaign in Ireland is the approach of the two sides. It’s not as oppositional at least in spirit as you might think.
