This from a certain Ms Catherine Day:
She told a Dail committee yesterday that when Irish representatives at meetings try to voice concerns on issues other than Lisbon, the mood among other delegates is that "the Irish are being difficult" again.
This has led to the Irish having to "think twice" before raising issues, she added.
Ms Day said that the 'No' vote has meant that, for the time being, other member states tend to view Ireland only through the prism of the Lisbon Treaty.
"But I do not believe that Ireland's image has been tarnished irrevocably, provided we are able to ratify in a reasonable time period.
Those naughty Irish and their "democracy". we must crush them!
Anyway a quite search on the inter-web for Catherine Day brings up this page, in which it says;
Ms. Day was part of a reshuffle among Commission officials in favour of liberal economic reformers
and we all know how well "liberal economic reforms" are working out right now. I wouldn't trust these people to drop if pushed over a cliff ...
