Micheal Martin is behind it, so there’s no reason why the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, wouldn’t be. In fact he’s gone so far as to say;
anything other than a ‘yes’ vote in next Friday’s referendum will allow Irish citizenship laws to remain open to abuse
Not wanting to tar everyone with the same brush however, he stresses that it is certain groups of non-nationals and not 100%. The problem as I see it currently is, Bertie is famous for churning out incredible nonsense at the best of times, so how is anyone going to take this seriously? If only the women’s groups weren’t against you Mr. Ahern, you might have a chance then.
