The Lisbon treaty is dead? Well no, not if politicians really, really want you to ratify it through a referendum!
They are set to announce guarantees that it will not undermine Irish sovereignty in key areas.
The treaty has been ratified in most EU countries and the Irish vote is the biggest remaining obstacle in its path.
Will the Irish – who have a chance of a referendum, unlike the UK – veto the treaty again, even if all these areas, key areas, are allowed to stand?
The guarantees, seen by the BBC in a draft of the summit conclusions, state that “the Lisbon Treaty does not affect or prejudice” Ireland’s military neutrality, tax policy and anti-abortion laws.
