Our treaty decision should wait until Europe's landscape settles
It is time to send a clear message to Enda Kenny and his ministers by snubbing the ballot box, writes James Fitzsimons
The political landscape across Europe is changing rapidly. But there is no sign that the changes will benefit Ireland. We are signed up to a bailout package that imposes austerity on a large part of the population. And in spite of claims to the contrary, the Government has done very little to make things better.
At the end of the month, it expects us to ratify the fiscal compact, even though we don't know what the new political leadership has in store for us. Some claim that a 'Yes' vote is the least worst option.
