No2Lisbon re-vote appeal to Mary McAleese President of Ireland sign now

The Irish people were the only European nation given the opportunity to vote on the Lisbon treaty. The people spoke a resounding NO.
The Lisbon Treaty is a re-worded re-structured version of the EU Constitution which was rejected in both France and the Netherlands by democratic vote of the people. Please note the Irish people were the only country to hold a referendum on this highly influential document due to a technicality: Ireland is the only country in Europe which states the need for a referendum in the Constitution. So had this not been so are we to assume they would have brought this controversial legislation into affect anyway? Is there a reason for this?

The Lisbon treaty is an incomprehensible constitution and as such can only be signed by most in blind faith.
Even Irelands EU commissioner Charlie Mc Creevey and Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Brian Cowen had both
admitted to having not read the treaty and at the same time were lobbying the Irish people for a Yes vote!
As a constitution it results in the loss of National Sovereignty for all 27 EU Countries!
It is influenced and implemented using a profoundly undemocratic process and it lays the foundation for an undemocratic federal state.
Appoints an unelected commission at the top of the decision making hierarchy.
Favours Big Business over the Individual citizen.
For Ireland and many of her European brothers it would mean the loss of permanent representation in the EU Commission.

Essentially what this means is a small group of politicians will be appointed (not elected) as the governing body of Europe with the power to change economic and political policy. These changes would have a profound impact on how we live our lives.

With all this in mind you can see why Ireland voted No.

Now there are talks of plans to hold another referendum on the Lisbon treaty. This is completely undemocratic and an insult to European Citizens. Our society is based on democracy For the People By the People and to ask for another referendum is un-democratic and further validates the points made earlier.

There are those who want this treaty passed but is it for the right reasons? Do they have our best interest at heart? Can we afford to wait and find out? As a pre-emptive move I ask that you sign this petition which will be presented to President of Ireland: Mary McAleese in the event of another referendum being held.

Thankyou for taking the time to read this statement.
____________________________________________________________________________

We petition the President of Ireland Mary McAleese, who holds the power to stop a referendum if it is deemed unconstitutional or undemocratic. We feel that to hold a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty fulfils these requisites and as such, as the elected President of the Irish state we ask her to use her legislative powers and influence on this matter
