Trodde du Norge hadde EU-angst?

Da skal du ta turen til Irland om dagen. Fredag er det folkeavstemning om den såkalte Lisboa-traktaten — en slags EU-grunnlov som vil fjerne de enkelte landenes vetorett, åpne for flertallsbeslutninger og skape den politiske posten EU-president. Avtalen er godkjent av parlamentene i alle de andre EU-landene, men Irland er det eneste landet som må ha folkeavstemning i tillegg.

Du skal ikke gå langt inn på en irsk pub før du møter tvil og skepsis. I går fikk jeg en lang leksjon av en mann langt nede i sin brune Guinness nummer fire eller fem. Ølet skummet og han frådet. Over rumenere og russere som han mente herjer og plyndrer landet og voldtar irske damer.

— Slikt  har aldri skjedd i Irland før, sa han.

— Men de norske vikingene var heller ikke så høflige da de kom røvende og ranende for 1000 år siden, sa jeg.

— Nei, de hadde ikke på langt nær oppførst seg så ille, mente mannen som helst ville gjenforene Nord-Irland med den irske republikken og kaste ut alle andre.

— Vi er en øy!

— Og vi har slåss for vår frihet!!

_ Og vi gir ikke fra oss det til noen dumme, dresskledde duster i Dublin eller Brussel!!!

Før han viste meg veien til nabolagets beste pub og takket høflig for samtalen.
