The political establishment are terrified that the wider European revolt against austerity will derail their treaty.

Their response has been to distort the message coming from France and to claim that the No side will inflict Greek style suffering on the Irish people. In both cases, the evidence points in the opposite direction.

During the election campaign Hollande explicitly stated that he would not ratify the Fiscal Treaty as it currently stands.

His newly appointed Finance Minister, Pierre Moscovici, has repeated the message: "What has been said quite clearly is that the treaty will not be ratified as is and that it must be completed with a chapter on growth, with a growth strategy,"

The Irish political establishment are desperately spinning a new story line – that they were for growth all along and that they welcome the election of Hollande in France.

They claim that Hollande has only demanded an additional item or a protocol to the Fiscal Treaty which would encompass growth.

This is a lie because Hollande explicitly said,  “he will re-negotiate the treaty on budgetary discipline not only for France, but for the whole of Europe,"  during a campaign speech in Paris on Saturday (17 March), adding that the pact focuses on austerity only and does little to spur economic growth.

Hollande’s victory has also to be seen in the much wider context of a European revolt against the politics of austerity. The electoral revolt has been most dramatic in Greece, where the two main parties who backed the memorandum with the Troika have been decimated. Their vote shrunk from 77% to 33%.

The obvious reason for this referendum is to legalise through the constitution the payment to private bankers from public funds retrospectively

The obvious reason for this referendum is to legalise through the constitution the payment to private bankers from public funds retrospectively. As they are being made retrospectively these payments could never meet the normal legal requirements for the awarding contracts from public funds. They are therefore corrupt. If this happened in an African country think of the hue and cry? It is being cleverly done in the insistence that we balance the books and this can only be done by paying the bankers which will now have constitutional backing.

Mr. Noonan's claim that a No vote "would have a negative effect on attracting more foreign companies, who already provide jobs for 250,000 workers here."

Mr. Noonan's claim that a No vote "would have a negative effect on attracting more foreign companies, who already provide jobs for 250,000 workers here." is disrespectful not only to the people but also to intelligence of those companies who invest here.

Thank You

I am a member of a very small (10 people) group who meet every Friday evening in our local pub.

We are cross community people consisting of 2 unemployed, 2 business owners,

2 sole traders and 2 retired people.  We met up because we were terrified by the prospect of this madness being voted in by the weak and disoriented people of Ireland.

Your site is a good source of material for our campaign.

As our task is to convince the stricken and frightened citizens of our town to vote NO, your site will help us.
