It is announced that Ireland WILL hold referendum on EU fiscal compact treaty

I look forward to the €1 minimum wage, compulsory German and Irish Army in every war arguments that are sure to be the highlight of the No campaign.

THE TAOISEACH HAS confirmed that there will be a referendum held to ratify the EU fiscal compact treaty.
Enda Kenny informed the Dáil this afternoon that the Attorney General had advised the cabinet this morning that “on balance” a referendum is required on the fiscal compact agreement that was finalised by EU leaders earlier this month.
“Ratification on this treaty will be another important step in the rebuilding of Ireland’s economy,” the Taoiseach said.
He said that “it is in Ireland’s national interest that this treaty be approved.”
Kenny said that he intends to sign the treaty at a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels this Friday but that the people will be required to give their authorisation in a referendum. There was no details on the nature of the question that will be asked.
The Taoiseach said that arrangements for the referendum will be finalised “in the coming weeks.”
