Lisbon

While I'm getting things out of my system, I'm going to nut the next person who hands me another "informative" pamphlet about the Lisbon treaty that contains absolutely no information whatsoever. Statements without backing aren't information and regardless of how many pictures of Lucinda Creighton smiling in a manner I'm sure she thinks is reassuring (it isn't, she looks like a pasty rapist), it doesn't alter the basic lack of facts provided.
I'm not asking for much, just that you provide me with the passage concerned along with your interpretation of it (or at least the page number) so I can judge for myself. Calling yourself the "Lisbon Treaty Information Campaign" doesn't grant you any weight in the eyes of the "Angry people with an IQ in triple digets committee" neither.

The thing is, as a rule of thumb, Fianna Fail are never in favour of something that'll work out well for me as a middle-income peon with a tendency to yell at people in the street so under that tenuous logic I'd do well to vote no. On the other hand, Fine Gael, who oppose anything Fianna Fail support simply on principle (and this will work against them the minute FF get wise and propose that Fine Gael should totally not disband) seem to be supporting the Lisbon vote so something is terribly wrong OR theres a clause in there that excludes political party members from a hidden "Logan's Run" clause.

The only thing both sides seem to agree on is that moving to Germany wouldn't be such a bad idea.

I think I am experiencing something akin to life as a mushroom when it comes to the treaty, haven't the foggiest idea about what it is designed to do. I think that giving the highlights to the man on the street in an unbiased fashion would be a good idea. I understand the idea behind rocket science and tractors, I am so very smrt, I mean...

I really must go find some info on that, it's probably fairly important.
