Supporters of Lisbon cover up the truth

Campaign Against EU Constitution – Vote No to Lisbon- Press statement

As the debate on the Lisbon Treaty heats up and polls show a surge in the No vote, government and Opposition supporters of the Treaty are using more spin to drum up support. Bertie Ahern himself has got into the act, scaremongering that a rejection of Lisbon would be “a disaster for Ireland”. He gave no evidence to support his claim, nor mentioned the fact that no ‘disaster’ happened in France or the Netherlands after the rejection of the EU Constitution. Investment in France actually went up. And Labour have recently claimed the Treaty would protect public services.

The CAEUC is an independent progressive alliance of 13 organisations, including the People Before Profit Alliance and many individuals calling for a NO vote in the referendum on the Lisbon Treaty.
