Across Ireland, voters have strongly voted No to the Lisbon Treaty, which looks all but certainly set for defeat.
Nationwide, based on unofficial tallies of seven out of 43 constituencies declared, the No is leading the Yes side 57.6 percent to 42.4 percent.
Dermot Ahern, the Irish justice minister, speaking on RTE television, said: “We’re in uncharted waters here.”
“The results are quite clear,” he added, “I don’t see how they can be overturned [from where they are at this point].”
Declan Ganley, the millionaire businessman and founder of Libertas, the centre-right anti-Treaty group campaigning around tax harmonisation issues and against European ‘red tape’, said: “It’s a great day for the Irish people and a great day for Irish democracy.”
“The Irish people have shown enormous courage and wisdom. They have given a resounding meassage that comes atop the votes against the constitution in France and the Netherlands.
“We are bringing democracy into the heart of the European Union,” he added, speaking to reporters in the courtyard of Dublin Castle, where the central vote count is being held. “This is democracy in action, and the third time Irish citizens have said ‘No’ to this formula.”
This is precisely why the corrupt governments of the other 26 members of the EU refused to give their respective People a referendum on the EUCCP Lisbon Treaty and the majority have already ratified it (in Britain the ratification is an Act of Treason).

Barring vote tampering, it looks like end result will be definitely be NO. The Daily Mail reports the following;
Irish voters appeared to have rejected the Lisbon Treaty this afternoon, throwing the European Union into crisis.
To shock across the continent, the country’s Justice Minister Dermot Ahern conceded today that the vote appeared to have been won by opponents of the controversial treaty.
‘It looks like this will be a “no” vote,’ Mr Ahern said on live television.
“At the end of the day, for a myriad of reasons, the people have spoken.”
The result, if correct, would deal a devastating blow to the controversial treaty and have major ramifications for the rest of Europe.
Ireland is the only EU country to have held a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, though 18 of the 27 members states have already ratified it.
We should use this intelligent and wise result from the Irish People to spread the truth about the Lisbon Treaty to those who do not know the facts. Time to step up the dissemination of information about the waste, the corruption, the Communist ideal’s and the dictatorship that is the real Face of the European Dream.
No doubt the EU will try its hardest to accelerate its progress and its plans for abolishing the sovereignty of member nations. The BBC mentions;
The BBC’s Oana Lungescu in Brussels says EU leaders are bracing for defeat but are expected to press on with the treaty, which is meant to streamline decision-making in the now expanded EU.
People have to realise that their respective governments do not act in their best interests or in the interests of their Laws. This has been decades in the planning and implementing and we are now in the final stages of their endgame for the European Superstate;
Former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovksy, who personally saw secret documents in 1992 which outlined a conspiracy to turn the European Union into a Socialist dictatorship;
The Soviet files outlined a plan from the mid-1980’s onwards to hijack the European Union and turn it into what Bukovksy calls the EUSSR, a totalitarian federal superstate with no accountability or direct representation.
There would have been no more Treaties after Lisbon, none would have been necessary as it would have finalised the transfer of all sovereign powers of all nations to Brussels.
That is why Brussels commanded our heads of State to ratify it without a public vote.
That is why Brussels refused to let member States publish the Lisbon Treaty until it is ratified.
That is why Brussels redesigned the Treaty with the specific intention of covering up the original Constitution while keeping all of its changes.
And that is why we, the People must STOP IT. Our governments are firmly in the grip of the EU which is obvious by their actions and inactions. We need to get active and pressure our governments like never before.
They have abused their power too much, for too long.
Today however, the score definitely reads;
Ireland 1 – 0 Tyranny.
