Signs of Euro-Lisbon Treaty Defeat Already Showing....... TUNDRA TABLOIDS
Excellent! The Euro-Weenies are already starting to wail over the early results of the Irish vote on the treaty.
CNN: Politicians from the government and major opposition parties -- all of whom campaigned for the treaty's ratification -- appeared uniformly grim-faced Friday as counting progressed in 43 constituencies nationwide.
"I do not see how we're going to claw back our position based on the numbers I'm seeing. It's going pretty much all the way of the `no' camp," said Pat Rabbitte, former leader of the opposition Labour Party.
"Claw" - how appropriate.
And anti-EU activists expressed growing confidence they would triumph when official results are declared Friday afternoon.
"People felt a convincing case for the treaty had not been made, and they felt hectored and bullied into supporting it while the wool was being pulled over their eyes," said Richard Boyd Barrett, leader of a hard-left pressure group called People Before Profit.
No official results were available. However, Ireland's legions of "tallymen" -- seasoned political activists who observe the ballot counting and provide reports to their own parties and pressure groups -- said the "no" camp appeared well in the lead in rural and urban working-class areas.
The lying media said at first it was a sure win and then it was a dead hear. Media polls are mendacious, aenda driven tools. Remember that Obambi.
Tallymen and other observers said the pro-treaty vote appeared to be holding up only in Dublin's more middle-class districts. But even there, they said, the "yes" votes were barely running neck and neck with the "nos."
Heh heh heh......excellent. *L* KGSUPDATE: Post Mortem!!!!!!!!!Dublin - Ireland had already moved into "post-mortem" phase by midday Friday as unofficial tallies, known for their accuracy, showed that the European Union's Lisbon Treaty was in for a thrashing in the referendum. Leader of the Libertas group, which spearheaded the no campaign, Declan Ganley said that it was "a great and proud day to be Irish."
