Pat Kenny and Lisbon: get over it

Pat Kenny is on the radio right now suggesting that the EU may tell the government to go hang if we ask for a bail-out for the pig industry. The reason: our ungratefulness with the Lisbon vote.

It’s been well established that Kenny operates on such a petty level. His on-air sulking when theĀ  vote was counted is proof of that. But if the EU can willingly let hundreds suffer as punishment for not voting the right way, well, we actually made the right choice.

I supported the treaty, I still do. But not for this. If I had thought it was a referendum was about letting Europe get it way or suffering the consequences, I would have voted no.

PS,

I got me a fluffly link from Damien. Thanks, man. Appreciated.
