From Ammendment 32 of the Corbett Report on the Lisbon Treaty debated on Wednesday:
Richard Corbett, Íñigo Méndez de Vigo
Treaty of Lisbon
Motion for a resolution
Point -2 a – (before point 2, under the title "More democratic accountability")
Motion for a resolution Amendment
-2a. Undertakes to respect the outcome of the referendum in Ireland
A huge majority (499 to 129) of European MEPs have subsequently voted against the motion:
"The European Parliament undertakes to respect the outcome of the referendum in Ireland".
Of the Northern Ireland MEPS, Jim Allister and Bairbre de Brún stood on the side of democracy and voted "yes"; Jim Nicholson of the UUP, shamefully voted against the motion.
