Neverending Referendum

Bertie says it will be an act of lunacy if we don't vote for the Lisbon Treaty; Dr Garrett FitzGerald says we will expend all our good will if we reject it; similar omens of doom emanate from other political heads.

Why don't they all save some time and energy and just state what we all know anyway: that if we vote No, they will just hold another referendum until we vote yes.

Nice II ushered in the concept of a "wrong answer" in a referendum vote - which instantly rendered the whole concept meaningless - so what's to stop the government holding another 'Neverending Referendum' until we give "the right answer"? The Nice re-vote marked a very dangerous precendent for democracy in this country - so go ahead. Vote No. See what happens.
