This'll be interesting

Brian Cowen, Ireland's Prime Minister, must explain to a summit of Europe's leaders next Wednesday how he is planning to resuscitate the EU Treaty, which was rejected by Irish voters in June.

While the final decision will be taken in December, Mr Cowen will hear demands from France and Germany that a second referendum take place as early as March 2009, before European elections.

I'm intending to be there myself, assuming my passport holds out.

It's something of a pity that as always, no only means no until the next time you're asked the same question, while yes means yes forever?
