When Irish eyes are smiling - not!

This could be the sign of things to come in the UK if this rather over-long cameraphone video of the queue for jobs at a Londis supermarket in Dublin is anything to go by. (I haven't been to that lovely gem of a city for about fifteen years and it seems a lot more cosmopolitan than I remember.)

Don't watch it to the end if you're easily bored!

More pertinently, I wonder whether Libertas can reproduce the original Irish 'no' vote against the Lisbon Treaty (aka The European Constitution) in the next ballot in October? Or has the economic landscape changed so much that a majority of the electorate will be persuaded to put their faith in ever closer union with the EU and all that will entail?

I'm worried they will do the wrong thing for the wrong reasons and, consequently, drag the UK into a spiralling fall into the abyss of a United States of Europe.
