Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) September 23, 2009
100 Reasons to Vote Yes to Lisbon II takes a comic and politically independent look at what the treaty means to the Irish. It clearly outlines how this pivotal reform protects Irish neutrality, supports our social values and enhances Ireland's power and influence within Europe.
Although Irish voters have been told repeatedly that they should ratify the Lisbon Treaty, they have not always been given clear arguments for doing so. Government and government-funded organisations are failing to communicate the meaning of the treaty effectively, because of their politically entrenched viewpoints.
Nick McGinley, comedian, writer and active citizen, provides a vital, alternative voice, lampooning the government, the YES vote, the NO vote and the EU in equal measure.
This thoroughly researched, candid and irreverent book captures the essence of Lisbon in 100 easy-to-understand sections. It is an ideal guide for thoughtful voters and the perfect gift for stubborn friends and family members.
