The referendum on the fiscal treaty should be considered solely from a narrow Irish perspective. Forget about being good Europeans and forget about having a popular vote on whether the current situation in Ireland is what people would like.

There cannot be a referendum on whether Ireland is in recession or on whether austerity can be avoided. Nor has the Irish electorate been engaged to offer advice on the proper conduct of European policy.
