Oh that IS good news. I have no words for recent events ...

I have. Several.

But I try not to use them in this journal.

You should hear the self appointed great & good here telling us how the Irish have "mixed up everything" and "blamed the EU for all their ills."

There're democracy deficits, and then...

... there's moral bankruptcy. The EU and its supporters exemplify the latter.

Good WHAT?

No, no. A singlemalt from Islay is warranted.

Unfortunately it will mean a delay only; funny how both France and the Netherlands have now ratified the Lisbon agreement...after the people of those countries voted 'no' the governments decided not to involve the general public any more, and just accept the agreement themselves. Having voted 'no' myself, I applaud the Irish people, but don't hold much hope for this result being at all meaningful or final.

I understand the fear, and the grounds for it.

Yet I hope.
