The fate of the EU Lisbon Treaty is not yet known, but the Eurocrats are already talking about how they can circumvent the sour result of the Irish vote, ie. rejection of the EU Treaty.
Al-Reuters: “The most important thing is that ratification should continue in other countries (if Ireland has voted “no”) and I have good reasons to think that the process of ratification will continue,” France’s Secretary of State for European Affairs Jean-Pierre Jouyet told LCI television. “We would have to see with the Irish at the end of the ratification process how we could make it work and what legal arrangement we could come to.”
The Finnish news was ripe with similar reports yesterday, anyone smelling a rat? The reports stated that if the ratification fails in Ireland, there could possibly be a ‘two tier’ situation that develops in which the other states that ratified the Lisbon Treaty, could move on ahead with their further integration unimpeded, and allow the Irish to join…once they get their “minds right”.
It would be a total disingenuous move on behalf of the EU-crats, but when has that stopped them in the past? Remember folks, the EU was never to become a federalized state, with its own President, Foreign and own currency when it was first promoted. It was however designed to be just that from the very beginning.
Deception, blue smoke and mirrors are the hall mark of the EU enterprise. *L* KGS
