Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, I have a thought. Don't hold a second referendum on approving Lisbon. Hold a referendum on allowing the rest of the EU to proceed without Ireland. In this case:

Voting Yes = We confirm that we opt out, but we permit the rest to proceed without us.
Voting No = No, actually we have changed our minds and want to ratify the Lisbon treaty.

As a minimum, at least it forces Libertas into reprinting all of its campaign material again :-).

And no, I don't have the faintest clue how this could be arranged with respect to number of commissioners, MEPs, etc.
