The Referendum that the UK really wants

No, its not about voting reform. Today, Irish voters are heading to the polls in a forced second referendum, because in the words of the President of the European Commission “they voted the wrong way” in their first referendum in which they rejected the Lisbon Treaty.

If this small straw poll gives the Irish NO campaigners any heart, I have over the past week conducted a straw poll on Twitter where I think the result is absolutely clear.

Should the UK stay in the EU?

Unequivacally Out Unequivacally Out 63% 38 votes
Out, but negotiate for EFTA membership Out, but negotiate for EFTA membership 22% 13 votes
Stay IN Stay IN 2% 1 vote
Stay IN, but try to reform from within Stay IN, but try to reform from within 12% 7 votes
Out, and work to dismantle the EU Out, and work to dismantle the EU 2% 1 vote
Don't know Don’t know 0% 0 votes

People appear to no longer even want  in any great percentage a trading partnership. They just want out.

So to all those people in Ireland who have an opportunity to speak for the other 500m voters in Europe who are denied a vote today, we remember that NO means NO, we just hope that you will say the same again on our behalf.

Irish 90 would vote no
