Nope, no matter how hard I try, I can't think of a better way to start the week-end than with the news that Sarkozy's nasty little coup de super-état has been squashed by the Irish people. Sure, it won't stop the ugly pan-European technocrats on their course to build up their western version of the Soviet Union—and probably hardly slow them at all—but any pan thrown in the process is a cause for celebration.

Champagne is merely the piss of a Parisian prostitute, and I don't drink that stuff, but I do break the Jameson and take my hat off. Cheers to the Irish! I spent some of the best times of my life (so far) in Ireland (far too) many moons ago, and I'm glad to see that the Irish live up to my memories.

I own, built and run this place. In a previous life I was not French but sadly, I died.

I used to be an Irish Mist man, myself. But who can argue the reason? I'm glad the Irish stood up to the high & mighty new feudal lords.

My great-great-great gand relatives might be shocked, but I'm thinking a return to Ireland if, God forbid, B. Hussein Obama is elected here.

"Champagne is merely the piss of a Parisian prostitute" -Heh.

There's a lot to be said for single malt scotch as well!

This is priceless.

When it looked like the vote would be "Yes":

"UPDATE: French prime minister Francois Fillon is saying that an Irish rejection of the treaty would mean the end. "If the Irish people decide to reject the treaty of Lisbon, naturally, there will be no treaty of Lisbon," he is reported as saying in an interview on French television."

Later on, when it was apparent the vote would be "No":

"UPDATE: Reuters is reporting that France's secretary of state for European affairs, Jean-Pierre Jouyet, is saying that an Irish "no" should not stop other member states ratifying the treaty. "The most important thing is that ratification should continue in other countries and I have good reasons to think that the process of ratification will continue," he told LCI television. "We would have to see with the Irish at the end of the ratification process how we could make it work and what legal arrangement we could come to.""

Thanks for that link, Frogman - inspiring reading. God belss the Irish.

The photograph is a great toast to the Irish. I love the colors.

That said, I'll take a shot of that. Let the will of the Irish people be heard 'round the world!

This is off-topic, but I just want to wish all the gentlemen readers of this blog site a very happy Father's Day. And I wish the same for the Dissident Frogman's father as well - I hope he is enjoying better health these days, DF.

To the great gaels of Ireland, the men whom God made mad:

For their songs of war are merry, and their songs of love are sad!

Sad or merry, singing or drinking (or both at once), bless them all for pushing back against the ridiculous pile of bureaucratic b.s. Brussels keeps shoving at them.

You are quite right about the EU. The problem with leftards is, no matter how many times you tell them no, they still do the stupid shit you told them not to do.
