I admit that Michael D Higgins would not have been my first choice for President of Ireland.
I voted for him simply because compared to the other bottom feeders, he was the best of a bad lot, though I did think he was probably treating the position as a nice little retirement hobby.
How wrong I was!
Now anyone who pisses off our gubmint is doing well. As our gubmint is so far up the arses of the EU lot, de facto pissing off our gubmint means pissing off Merkel and her pals. And that has to be a good thing.
Michael D has pissed them off royally.
There is no way he is going to allow
Merkel Dame Enda sneak in the Fiscal Treaty or whatever fancy fucking name they are giving it. They are desperate to avoid a referendum here as they know it will be an extremely tough fight. After all, Europe is one big happy family, so we can’t have the Irish showing any kind of negativity, now can we? In order to avoid a referendum, they are frantically trying to avoid this embarrassment by sneaking the treaty in by the back door.
Our Michael D ain’t going to allow that. He has announced publicly that he is going to be watching them very closely indeed, and that at the first sign of any shenanigans, he is going to call up the Council of State and force a referendum.
Fair play to ya, Michael D.
I’m sorry I ever doubted you.
