A Yes or No verdict in Thursday’s Lisbon Treaty referendum
will have far-reaching implications for Ireland
and its European Union neighbours.

If voters accept the amendment to the Irish constitution
then the charter will usher in a new era
of streamlined decision-making for the 27 member states.
Rejection at the polls will influence
the ratification processes of other countries
and effectively kill the Treaty
dead.
