Not this again...

The Govt must work harder to "sell" the troubled EU Constitution to the Irish people during the next year, a minister said today.

European Affairs Minister Noel Treacy said member states would revisit the historic document during the Austrian EU presidency in the first half of 2006.

Let's look at some of his comments:

"Our Government remains committed to the Constitution and to using this year to engage the public of Ireland on the issue of Europe."

Yes, to 'engage' them by scaring them into supporting the EU.

"The rejection of the Treaty by France and Holland resulted in soul-searching and uncertainty about the role of Europe."

Wasn't that the reason people voted no? How about you actually look at reforming the EU then instead of trying to get your way?

"We need to better explain how Europe works today – what it does and doesn’t do – and how it can best serve its citizens in the future."

In other words, the Government is going to pump millions of the taxpayers money into funding a campaign designed to brainwash Irish people into the EU's way of thinking.

Just kill that damned constitution and be done with this farce, will you?
