Too scared to hope...

From the defiantly pro-Lisbon) Irish Times

Early Dublin tallies lean toward No vote

Counting of votes in the Lisbon Treaty referendum began at 9am today, and early Dublin tallies show the vote leaning toward the No side.
In Dublin South-West, there is a report 60-40 split in favour of the No side, and this 60-40 tally is repeated in Dublin North-West, Dublin Central, and Dublin North-East.
In Dublin South-East, early tallies indicate a 70-30 split in favour of the No vote. Elsewhere in the country, tallies from Limerick West indicated a 59-41 No vote,
Tipperary South tallies show 50.3 Yes and 49.7 No vote, while Tipperary North tallies indicate a 50-50 split.

I myself won't believe anything until the results are in, although I do know a 'NO' vote will be ignored by the Euro extremists. Their new nationalism doesn't care for public opinion.

And regardless of the vote, I still haven't had my say, and I demand one.

The Irish are already celebrating
It's wonderful news and it's a terrific end to a brilliant week in politics (cf David Davis).
