Voters say YES??? How many voters participated out of the potential number of voters? The apathy of 'voters' NOT voting is growing to such an extent that anyone putting a cross on a ballot paper these days is deemed to be a major voter! With election fraud so manifest and so public how dare 'they' say "voters say yes". OK - get off your backsides and shelve the apathy and VOTE - have a very stringent counting system which cannot be corrupted and obviously noone is blackmailed in the counting process.... Why can dead people still vote in state elections? Who presses the 'power-cut' button during the counting process. No wonder we can't be bothered any more, but what is the MINIMUM percentage of voters required before there literally is a NO VOTE situation? Then what...?Voters say yes to euro austerity rules
IRELAND has backed the European Union's Fiscal Pact in the region's only referendum on a controversial treaty that locks the euro's austerity rules into national law.
Supporters of the ''yes'' movement, backed by the full weight of the government, trade unions and big business, won a clear victory with more than 60 per cent of the vote.
After a bad-tempered campaign marred by a lower-than-normal turnout and deep social divisions, ''no'' campaigners led by Sinn Fein conceded defeat.
Enda Kenny, the Prime Minister, hailed a result that would give the ''stability and certainty that investors need''. He added: ''The people of Ireland have taken another step on the road to economic recovery. Today has been a good day's work.''
Avid is quite annoyed by so-called 'democracy' in these fascist times....
