THE findings of the recent Red C opinion poll showed that 72pc of Irish people would be unwilling to make further sacrifices to ensure the survival of the euro and that 69pc were unaware that a new voting system, giving bigger EU member states more power and taking power away from smaller member states, will be introduced during the coming year.

Our Government and political establishment should not dismiss the significance of these findings as just more euro-sceptic nonsense.
