Dana Speaks Sense Shocker!

Foreign Affairs Minister Dermot Ahern has vowed to press ahead with a planned Irish referendum on the proposed EU Constitution, despite France's rejection of the document.

Around 55% of the French electorate voted 'no' in a referendum over the weekend, raising serious doubts about the future of the proposed constitution.

The document must be ratified by all 25 member states before it can take effect.Despite the French result, Mr Ahern said Irish voters were still entitled to give their view.

Fine Gael and the Labour Party have both backed this stance, but former independent MEP Rosemary 'Dana' Scallan said the French vote should be respected.

Well said Dana! (There's three words I never thought I'd say) I think it is very sad that the three biggest parties in this state have such contempt for democracy. Then again, they did spit on our original Nice treaty rejection, let's not forget.

We were told that this constitution required 'unanimous' support so it is shameful that this has proven to be yet another lie. Disgraceful.
