Keep digging...

From PA we learn that Sarkozy has managed to fit a hair between the concept of a "referendum" and "giving people the opportunity to give their opinion".

"I never said Ireland had to organise a new referendum," he said.

"I said that at some stage or another the Irish had to be given the opportunity to give their opinion, they had to give their opinion. I never said there had to be a referendum. I didn't say on what question there would be a vote. I did not, in any way, meddle in Irish domestic affairs."

No, not meddling at all. We're sure Dublin was always intended to be his first stop as EU President...

And Paddy Power, who called the result wrongly, says...

"What next for Lisbon Treaty?

Any referendum on EU issues to be put to the Irish people before the end of 2010
1 - 5

No referendum on EU issues to be put to the Irish people before 2010
3 - 1

Must be a complete replica to the Lisbon Treaty which took place in 2008."
