THE following is a deliberate simplification of the options facing this country, putting them into three categories that should be readily understood by all men and women concerned about Ireland's sovereignty, Ireland's future and Ireland's relationship with Europe.
The whole country accepts that it is in our best interest to remain part of Europe. All Irish people respect the value of the European Union now and in the future, and the huge benefit membership has been to us in the past.
We also hope the potential of that will once again be strong, though not exclusively so in the future. This needs to be said at the outset, since the fragmentation of the European Union is threatened anyway, the disintegrating force increasingly becoming the obsession with the main currency.
