    the vote in Wisconsin which, from what I read in diaries about it, seemed to reflect a fear of instability rather than an endorsement of Walker's positions.
    I wish I had had your diary as a reference yesterday when I posted this comment as a response to gjohnsit's diary about Spain here.
    You have outlined the position of the Irish much better than I did.
    People are not voting for their best interests, they are voting against torches and pitchforks.

      to vote in Ireland?  The majority didn't see the point either way.  I imagine that there's a bit of fatalism there in regards to the fact that every time a vote on the EU fails to go the EU's way they just re do it until it does go their way.  Why bother voting no if you know that's going to be undone months or years down the line.

      There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
