Johnny Fallon: A Yes vote will give Coalition a renewed mandate ... a No vote means a General Election

Close

THE decision of the Government to hold a referendum on the fiscal compact is a welcome one. It is a wise choice. The risk of the matter being sent to the Supreme Court and government being forced into a referendum was simply too great. Governments must lead from the front and show that they are unafraid.



This referendum has the potential to be a defining moment in the history of the Irish state and the biggest test yet of the government.
