Irish vote against European Union Lisbon treaty


Good news:

"Irish Justice Minister Dermot Ahern says substantial vote tallies across the country show the European Union Lisbon reform treaty has been rejected.

"Mr Ahern says it is clear the No vote is ahead in a vast majority of constituencies.

"This would scupper the treaty, which must be ratified by all members. Only Ireland has held a public vote on it..." ( BBC NEWS Europe 'Strong show' for Irish No vote)

"If the Irish people decide to reject the treaty of Lisbon, naturally, there will be no Treaty of Lisbon," French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said on 12 June 2008.
