    I'm really starting to get pissed off with these people, we've already voted on that proposal, so why come back with it again? What part of 'No' is so hard for them to understand?

    The part where they wanted a Yes.

    Just like Lisbon.

    There should be a rule that referenda on the same issue need a 2/5/10 year break before being proposed again

    At least with Lisbon they had the 'decency' of waiting a year before foisting it on us again...this just reeks of contempt for the electorate from Kenny and his sideshow of clowns. And why wouldn't they be contemptuous when they keep getting re-elected and ride high in the opinion polls despite their lies.

    Re inquiries referendum

    If a group of former AGs and retired Chief Justice again express reservations, will they be again ignored?

    Completely. A pension cut might also be threatened.

    That is, by a considerable margin, the most sensible proposal ever posted here.

    If the government was serious about political reform then the next referendum it sponsors would be to amend article 46 to that effect.

    I was praising DCon's proposal, not denigrating other contributions.

    My position on lamp post stringing is coloured by the prospect of Cowen's rancid corpse dangling outside my window for weeks.

    The wind has no proper respect.

    It's the tax on pensions that's going to cause the big reaction. It's becoming clear that no stone will be unturned to wring the liquidity out of us, apart from the ones covering the government and top civil servants and crony class.
