Ireland: The Lisbon Treaty Referendum has resulted in a victory for the Yes camp by 67.1% to 32.9%. The result was in part due to the enormous resources of the Yes campaign which had the support of big business, Robbie Keane, the Bishops, Seamus Heaney and of all the government and main opposition parties. The outcome was a dramatic reversal of the last referendum with swings of more or less 20% in many constituencies.
