Maverick Danish MEP "Exposes" Lisbon Treaty

Danish MEP, Jens-Peter Bonde, has been campaigning since January against the passage of the Lisbon Treaty. The sum of his complaints point disparagingly to the opaque nature of the debate and the undemocratic manner in which the process is unfolding across Europe. Only Ireland has secured the right of the citizens to vote on the treaty.

According to Mr. Bonde, a "Yes" vote on June 12, would not be in Ireland's best interests. As reported in the Belfast Telegraph,

Mr Bonde has written a book outlining what he says is a readable version of the treaty, which will be put to a referendum in Ireland on June 12th.

He says it would allow bigger EU member states to vote against the smaller countries on policies such as agriculture, trade, foreign investment and corporation tax.

Mr Bonde also says EU politicians will try to reintroduce the treaty with some concessions if the Irish electorate decides to vote 'no'.

Mr. Bonde's remarks "exposing" the Lisbon treaty appear in the following video:

And don't forget the misleading advertising of the "Yes" side. (Vote "Yes" for Big Tits):

Please Irish People, in the name of Europeans peoples , vote NO !

See the comments below this french article http://www.liberation.fr/actualite/monde/330142.FR.php
Most of the commentators wish Ireland could vote NO.

If ever it’d happened, this would be a huge slap in the face of the European Commision technocrats who are completely disconnected from reality. The current way the European Union is designed is mainly in the interest of politicians, media and corporations and definitely not in the interest of the majority of the people.

If ever Ireland voted YES, Europe would become the poodle-puppet of the USA, specially into military domains.

Please, be wise, vote NO and do not fear the pressure of the press and of politicians.
