A huge 'No' vote in the first with an acceptance in the second would be the best option IMO.
There won't be a second round.
12 ratifications only are needed for the Treaty to enter into force. Those are in place already. Voting no will give no one ' a fucking hard kick in the arse' except every person resident in Ireland. It may well be that all of us need a collective kick in the arse, but don't come whinging if the whole place falls apart when the Germans/IMF/EUSF tells us to fuck off when we ask for a dig out mid 2013 to pay basic ps salaries and unemployment benefits
Good and Good.
Yes I do hope that there won't be a second round but this being Ireland there will be a Post Vote EurOmeter VirtuoMeter Paddyometer Poll carried out where the result will (if it's a NO) be declared to be void and there will be a secon and third and if necessary fourth vote by the powers that be to ensure that we get a Yes.
I'm a public servant and very very dependant on my public sector salary to keep me alive and afloat in this expensive world.
I'm also unsure that the same group of uselesses who run this country will be in any way affected if we vote NO but I know that they will be less affected if we vote YES
As Gilmore said if you vote NO there will be consequences.
I want consequences as I'm fed up of the type of shite that I see in Ireland (both in the private and public sector) and this population needs a drastic wake up from it's celtic tiger ways!
