EU's wishes become the will of the people

I AM usually an admirer of David McWilliams and his common sense writings on the Irish economy.

However, I have to take exception to his article (Irish Independent, February 16, 2011) that: "There is no democrat in Europe who would oppose the will of the people."

Has he forgotten that these same European democrats refused to accept the "will of the people" and, using our spineless politicians, forced a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty until they got the result they wanted?
