Polls show Ireland ratifying Lisbon Treaty
The Irish Farmers Association (IFA) president Padraig Walshe, wants a strong yes showing from farmers this time. “We have a population of four million people, we produce enough food for about 24 million people. Access to the European market is crucial to us,” he said.
However James Reynolds, the chairman of the Farmers for No campaign, is canvassing against the treaty. Reynolds believes Lisbon threatens Ireland’s food industry and a possible 80,000 jobs.
“If we say yes to Lisbon, we will be giving a blank check to Brussels to abuse farmers, to force them to become dependent on hand-outs and subsidies,” Reynolds said. “A farmer who votes for Lisbon is in effect a turkey voting for Christmas.”
