The voice of bitter experience

In the letters column of The Daily Telegraph today, Mr Jonathan Wilson of Dublin writes:

Your editorial (30 May) is correct: the French Non will not stop the EU or even make it think again. The hallmark of the EU is its contempt for democracy and the will of the people, which are viewed as inconvenient. The EU will push ahead regardless.

When we in Ireland previously voted No, we were, in effect, sent to bed without any supper and told to vote the correct way the next time, which, to our shame, we did.
Despite all the whiffle in today's press, I suspect Mr Wilson may be right. As we have observed, the fat lady hasn't sung yet.
