Pravda - Slovakia | 23/09/2009

Ireland is indebted to Europe

"All of Europe is waiting to see what October 2 will bring," writes the left-leaning daily Pravda on Ireland's second referendum on the Treaty of Lisbon for reforming the European Union: "The first referendum was 'won' by [Lisbon Treaty opponent and] multimillionaire Declan Ganley, who founded the pan-European Libertas party on the strength of his success. But that didn't stop him from suffering a fiasco in the EU parliamentary elections. ... Today a majority of Irish parties support the Treaty of Lisbon. They are aware that thanks to European integration their country evolved from being one of the poorest countries on the continent to one of the richest. Formerly an agrarian country, Ireland is now a modern state. Irish politicians know full well that Ireland is indebted to Europe. According to forecasts it looks as if everything should go well. And it's a good thing too, because Europe has no Plan B."
