Incredibly, on its website EU Law A&L Goodbody continue to claim that it advised the Referendum Commission on the Maastricht Treaty referendum when there was NO Referendum Commission in place for such referendum.
Among our high profile assignments in this area have been:
Advice to Ireland’s Referendum Commission on the Nice and Maastricht Referenda

Here is a funny thing.
Immediately after my last post on this thread - the one giving a link to the Goodbody site, substantiating the amazing claim made by Papinian that they claim to have given advice to a non-existent Referendum Commission, someone went to the trouble of going to the Rating option, gave the thread a minimun one star rating, and left without saying a word.
Now why would someone do that?
It strikes me that, once again, the No side is engaged in doing their best to destroy the credibility of any neutral body before the referendum, because neutral bodies fail to agree with their hysterical claims.

The Referendum Commission was a joke during the campaign and completely destroyed any credibility it had. If the No side had said the sky is blue and snow is white the commission wouldn't have waited long to say it's all 'lies and misrepresentation'.
