Irish Giving Lisbon Treaty Red Card

13 June 2008

Commenting on the unofficial tallies of returned votes from the Irish referendum on the Lisbon Treaty SNP MEP Alyn Smith said:

"While official results are still coming in, it now appears likely that the Irish will give the Lisbon Treaty a red card.

"The SNP has long viewed the Lisbon Treaty as flawed and I hope the governments of Europe will take the opportunity at the European Council in Brussels on 19-20 June to think again."
