Nice debate, shame about the treaty?

category national | miscellaneous | feature author Saturday October 05, 2002 03:59author by IMC Editorial Group - IMC Ireland Report this post to the editors

The referendum on the Nice treaty on October 19th has produced a flurry of campaigning groups canvassing holding meetings and protests:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 for a No vote.
It as also produced some lively debate on the newswire 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
The Yes side includes major business organisations , most of the main political parties, farmers groups , the trade unions and Bono .
The resources of the Yes side are clearly higher, which might explain the posters. 1 2 3
A key issue for many IMCers is article 133 and its effect on Public Services: 1 2 3 4 5 6
Though politicians have been somewhat reluctant to discuss the issue.
While the yes side have had some problems , some unpleasant characters are calling for a no vote.
There have been complaints of media bias and activists are monitoring of the balance of the corporate media coverage. 1 2
