The Lisbon Treaty: A (Spin) Doctor Writes
On 1 July France takes on the presidency of the European Union. Its primary job will be to rescuscitate the defunct/glitched Lisbon Treaty. Here is a diagram showing CPR (do not try this on someone unless trained or under the supervision of an authorised person).
Take the treaty and alternately harangue and bribe the Irish electorate until a Yes is heard. Pace yourself to the rhythm of Beethoven's Ninth. Then ignore the Irish. If this procedure fails you may attempt French kissing to elicit a positive response as shown below : If done correctly this should result in the English getting screwed and the problem is solved.
