Unlawful interference, threats and propaganda lead to Irish voting ‘Yes’ on Lisbon Treaty
On Friday, 2nd October 2009, the people of Ireland voted - for the second time in less than eighteen months - on the so-called ‘Lisbon Treaty’.
Previously, in June 2008, the Irish people had voted a decisive ‘No’ to this undemocratic treaty, thus mirroring the decisions of the French and Dutch electorates who had voted against the EU Constitution - with which the treaty shares 96 percent of its content - in 2005.
On this occasion, however, following unlawful political interference from the EU Commission; widespread threats and lies to the Irish electorate - including propaganda that a ‘No’ vote would condemn Ireland to economic isolation; corporate interference from the likes of Ryanair (who spent half a million euros campaigning for a ‘Yes’), Intel (who spent several hundred thousand) and multi-billion euro drug company Pfizer (who openly warned of a “flight of capital” from Ireland if it voted ‘No’); and, not least of all, the blatant sweeping away of Ireland’s guidelines on media impartiality, the Irish people voted ‘Yes’.

Why there is no way that the ‘Brussels EU’ can survive
The Dr. Rath Foundation was engaged in informing people ahead of the Irish referendum and received particularly encouraging feedback with regard to the history of the ‘Brussels EU’.
As a result of this feedback, it became obvious that the outcome of this referendum was essentially irrelevant because the people of Ireland and Europe have now been educated about the dark roots of the ‘Brussels EU’.
As such, there is no way that the undemocratic construct of the ‘Brussels EU’ can survive now that the facts about its history are out in the open.
