I agree it would better if we could put real pressure on the Greens. But unfortunately your suggestion will not do that. The only 'Real' pressure that can be applied at the moment is to endanger Lisbon II.
I don't agree that my suggestion won't put pressure on the Greens. I suspect there are many people in the Green party who are opposed to NAMA. If there was a sustained campaign by Joe Public to persuade the Greens to withdraw their support for NAMA, it would be very difficult for the leadership to resist.
Endangering Lisbon II would be cutting off our nose to spite our face. There's no guarantee that the government would fall if Lisbon failed, or that NAMA would be endangered. FF could turn around and say that without Lisbon we need NAMA even more than before.
My suggestion is this: To start a website something like http://www.NAMAinLisbonout.ie
. People would be invited to subscribe, name address etc., on the following.
We the undersigned, who would ordinarily support the Lisbon treaty, will vote against this necessary treaty until the present government agree to abandon thier NAMA proposal.
If this viral campaign gains traction and in turn gets noticed in the mainstream media, it will generate more debate, more pressure, and creat a dynamic that FF/Greens could well do without.
All of the above but instead of messing about with the wholly unrelated Lisbon question, create the debate and pressure on the Greens' role in government. And also that of the independents propping up the government, and any sane backbenchers who have their doubts about NAMA.
