Ireland Punches Above Her Weight

Feelings in Ireland are running high. The arrogance of the EU, the threats being made against Ireland by the EU, and the false promises, are starting to rile the quiet independent spirit of the Irish. This cartoonist has managed to put into picture form the anger rising in Irish hearts against the unreasonableness of the EU, and its unsuitability to act as the government of Europe. A picture is worth a thousand words. Ireland should adopt this cartoon as the banner of the movement to keep its freedom from totalitarian tyranny. Declan Ganley and other campaigners should place it in their literature. It is powerful.

This is the email text I received along with the cartoon.

I am an artist and Illustrator, I drew this
Illustration to express my feelings about the lisbon treaty.
It seems to me that there will inevitably be a second referendum
forced on the Irish people.Feel free to use the image as you see fit.

Has anyone seen this cartoon anywhere else yet? It must be used.

I posted this picture on my blog, and it has been adopted by a French eurosceptic blog that I am in contact with, so hopefully McDermott's cartoon will get a European as well as Irish audience.

Hi Craig - yes The Connolly Column does a great job.

Please give a link to the French website. I'd like to see a French eurosceptic agreeing with the cartoon! The French probably hate the euro as much as anyone, except no newspaper which intends to survive as a business can dare to say such truths.
