Crotty v. An Taoiseach (1986) was a landmark decision of the Irish Supreme Court which found that Ireland could not ratify the Single European Act unless the Irish Constitution was first changed to permit its ratification. The case established that significant changes to EU treaties required an amendment to the Irish constitution – always done by means of a referendum – before they could be ratified by Ireland.
‘The question therefore is whether the State in attempting to ratify this Treaty is endeavoring to act free from the restraints of the Constitution.’
—Walsh J (Supreme Court Judge)

As reported by the financial blog The Automatic Earth written by Nicole Foss, she has reported that the German magazine Der Spiegel dropped a bombshell this morning in an article that the IMF plans to dump Greece in September. So far the Der Spiegel article is in German. Normally they will eventually publish articles in English.
"Griechenland könnte schon im September pleitegehen. Der Internationale Währungsfonds hat nach Informationen des SPIEGEL der Brüsseler EU-Spitze signalisiert, dass er sich nicht an weiteren Hilfen für das Land beteiligen werde."
Greece could go bankrupt as early as September. Spiegel has obtained information that the IMF told the Brussels leadership it would not make more money available for help to Greece.

The proposal to ratify the European Stability Mechanism Treaty as it stands and to approve the Article 136 TFEU amendment to the EU Treaties as authorizing the Stability Mechanism envisaged in the ESM Treaty, are unlawful under the EU Treaties and are therefore unconstitutional in Ireland and the other EU Member States. ... read full story / add a comment

“I pay tribute to the ‘Farmers For No’ for coming together and calling for a No Vote…
…Contrary to popular belief and what the government is spouting, the sky won’t fall on our heads if we vote no on May 31st.
We will retain some flexibility and some ability to retain the control over our National finances and to be able to use those finances for the good of all the citizens of the country and not for the good of saving the financial institutions of Europe.”

The elections in both Greece and France last weekend have witnessed a resounding rejection of austerity. These results coupled with news last night that Angela Merkel has been forced to postpone 'fiskalpakt' ratification under pressure from parliament, illustrate that the European Union’s intended ‘Austerity Treaty’ is coming away at the seams. ... read full story / add a comment
