    It's not a sign of weakness to change your mind, it's a sign of great strength and maturity. To be admired really.
    You were bought off.

    Can't hold my breath much longer! xx

    Why do you think that? Once clarified to expose a lot of the theatrical tales being spun about the Treaty, it was accepted by the Irish people and their decision has been vindicated in the years since. None of the predictions made by the likes of Sinn Fein in opposition to the Treaty ever came true and the second referendum came with additional guarantees regarding abortion, neutrality, workers' rights and tax.

    Essentially -- the main misgivings people had about the Treaty were addressed. It wasn't just a re-run of the same referendum on the same information.

    We don't think it we know it,Gerry has openly admitted it several times.
    This is a fight between the establishment with its power to create false impressions and the people's right of democracy.One vote one person.
