Irish ‘Yes’ Vote Paves the Way for Stronger, More Democratic EU

This result finally puts to rest years of wrangling over Europe’s future and paves the way for a stronger and more democratic European Union.

The worst thing would be to re-open this self-indulgent debate. David Cameron should now finally accept the treaty as a fact of life instead of plotting with Eastern European nations to have it blocked. The Conservatives are already embarrassing themselves and Britain with their petulant impotence on Europe.

Big issues like the economic crisis, climate change and cross-border crime cannot be tackled by any country on its own. The EU offers us safety in numbers and this is why best place for Britain remains at the very heart of Europe.
