Is the No result indicative of a loss of mandate for FF?
Given that all of the major Political Parties advocated a Yes vote, would a General Election be pointless?
Would a second referendum on Lisbon be justified / acceptable after such an election?
I sincerely doubt that an election will be called, but still want to know what you think.
It shouldn't be called - the government got their mandate from the Dail last month, not from the people in this referendum. That said, no second referendum should be held this side of the next general election in 2012.
