When does no mean yes?
Usually in political referenda. The Irish have had the chance many of us here in the UK would like – to say No to the European Constitution (ooops Lisbon Treaty).
But in the usual style of the EU I suspect that won’t be the end of it. They will probably assume that the Irish public can’t possibly have meant to say No, and that they really should have another referendum. Funny how once they say yes there is never another chance to say no.
