The Irish nation embraces secularism in politics, the Irish left profess a belief in secularism. Allowing themselves to campaign on knee jerk instincts rather than facts and allowing themselves to be lumped in with the far right they have done themselves a great deal of damage.
They should have noted that the racist, xenophobic, anti gay attitudes that dominated the NO campaigns and posters of COIR and other groups were something they should have run away from. Unite the British based trade union should be boycotted by Irish workers. COIR and Libertas should be fully examined for the sources of their finances and their shadowy backers.
For the Irish left it is back to the drawing board.

A selection of quotes from No posters which reveals their contempt for the people of Ireland.
For the first time in my life I'm absolutely ashamed to be Irish. I never thought I'd resent my own nation so much.
To be so easily bullied, tricked and manhandled into such a massive change of mind is truly pathetic. A resigned yes was the decision of so many weak people who bought the lies, and most knew they were lies, on the faintest hopes that this whorish treaty would somehow sort out our economic crises.
Expect more of the same, Ireland. You deserve no better.Quote:
For a nation to have fallen so low. The Irish now deserve anything that comes their way, feebleQuote:
yeah to many of you irish people are so easily bought and belive anything they say on the news and on the newspaper.Quote:
once again we have our "begging-bowl/cap-in-hand" head on our shoulders. i am embarrassed. i am prepared now to throw my hands in the air because no longer do i care. not one jot: the irish people have voted away their sovereignty for the hollow promise of jobs. despair.
TAKE IT DOWN FROM THE MAST
Take it down from the mast, Irish traitors,
It's the flag we republicans claim,
It can never belong to free staters,
For you've brought on it nothing but shame.Quote:
How many idiots live in Ireland? When the YES vote is tallied we'll know!Quote:
Lie down, roll over, and let your rulers tickle your bellies, you bunch of numpties.Quote:The saddos don't mind who governs them so long as the are given the impression that they are getting something for nothing. Like throwing scraps to the dogs. And getting the odd pat on the head for being good boys.
