They might, you know, they might.…
A TNS/MRBI poll published in the Irish Times shows that opposition to the EU Treaty has more than doubled over the last week, increasing from 17 to 35 per cent over the last three weeks.
Support for Yes campaigners, supporting a Treaty crafted to replace the old EU Constitution rejected by French and Dutch voters three years, has dropped five points to 30 per cent in the same period.
Undecided voters stand at 28 per cent and seven per cent said they would not vote.
Nail biting stuff. Imagine that they do reject it. Which way will people look at it?
That 4 million people or so, less than 1% of total EU population, cannot be allowed to dictate for the others?
Or that it failed in the only place where it was put to the popular vote?
Those aren\’t mutually exclusive views, of course, but different people will tend to emphasise one or the other..
