That mechanism Diarmuid Phelan is talking about for treaty ratification (the internationally agreed (?) mechanism by which Treaties operate) - that's a provision inside the Lisbon Treaty itself, is it ? Which Article is it if it is ?
If there are new protocols or articles added for us then the Treaty will have to be re-ratified by all the seperate governments again - what a pain in the hole... the others won't do it will they or can they fast track it ?
Good God what a mess - we'll just vote Yes though next time, won't we ? They should just put one box on the ballot paper..
