Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If, as seems likely, the Attorney General rules that a Referendum is needed to ratify the "compact" in Ireland - ironically, partly because it is not ceding power to the EU, but to a new 26 country entity - and that the referendum is defeated, as seems even more likely, then the markets are going to be even more impressed. Sarkozy's re-election hopes will be in deep DoDo and Merkel will be a dead woman walking because the exercise of democracy has a way of doing that to ill thought out schemes.
