No upside to voting against the treaty

Readers will make up their own mind how to vote in the fiscal treaty referendum. There are valid arguments on both sides - albeit few of the real ones have featured much in the public debate. However, our view is that there is no advantage to be gained for Ireland if we reject the treaty, and considerable risks from doing so. This, rather than any positive changes which the treaty itself will bring, provides the most important reason for voting Yes.
