Irish voters have backed the Lisbon Treaty referendum at a second time of asking, the country's prime minister has said.

Brian Cowen said Ireland was ready to stand with Europe.
"We stand with them as we seek to move forward togeher," Mr Cowen said.
"We do this because we know we are better and stronger together."
Early tallies from count centres across Ireland suggested voters had accepted the charter, following a massive swing to the "Yes" side.

After the shock rejection of the Treaty, which aims to modernise and streamline the EU, in a referendum in June last year, this time supporters were confident of victory.
But with higher unemployment and the Irish economy in meltdown, people here are far more open to the argument that the European Union is good for this country.
Despite the government being deeply unpopular, the arguments are not obscured this time by issues like abortion and Ireland's neutrality.

The implications of the vote are huge.
If the Irish rejected the treaty again it would be dead in the water.
But the OK means the Poles and the Czechs are likely to follow suit and the treaty will be ratified.
That could put enormous pressure on the Conservative leader David Cameron, who has promised to hold a similar referendum in Britain if he wins the next election.

On a lighter note, "No" supporters had said that if they lose they would demand a replay.
They say the score will be 1-1 and it would only be fair to have a decider - another referendum!
:: There have been suggestions in the European Parliament that ex-British prime minister Tony Blair could be given the job of EU president which would be created if the Lisbon Treaty comes into force.
The Tories have issued a warning to European leaders not to appoint Mr Blair.

Shadow foreign secretary William Hague said the Conservatives were prepared to lobby European capitals in an effort to block the appointment.

If Tony Blair does get his wish and becomes the first President of the EU, I bet my bottom dollar he will be more visible than he has been as the Envoy to the Middle East.

He has done sweet f*** all to try to resolve the Gaza crisis.

That is exactly what he always wanted....he didn't care zilch about the UK, as for being an Peace Envoy...haven't heard a word about what he is doing exactly and whatever it is it doesn't seem to be working

Why solve the strife in Gaza? Nice little earner that is, along with all the funds rolling in from Afghanistan, share portfolios will be bulging with dosh to buy new homes for ones children, hey what...

More worrying is will he take his dear backstabbing friend Brown as European Finance Minister? After all Super Brown did save the World from the depths of recession...
