IN plain language, Mario Draghi, president of the European Central Bank, has told us that the proposed Fiscal Stability Treaty, which the heads of state and government are expected to agree today, will result in a diminution of sovereignty over budgetary policy in participating countries.
This really draws a line under the massive and sustained deception that has gone on through the past four years as a deeply undemocratic Europe, together with the giddy and deceitful politicians who led us through the crucial Lisbon Treaty years, tried to cover up the true implications of what they were deciding and recommending.
Fine Gael and Labour, in opposition when the worst deals in our history were carried through, supported what was happening and subscribed to a good deal of the rubbish that was uttered by leading figures in the EU takeover of our economy. These were persuasive and experienced voices on the sidelines, supporting the Big Lie.
