The Irish voted to reject the recent EU treaty, despite support from all political parties and important unions.  Sounds a lot like the immigration issue here in the US.  I love this quote:

Fourteen countries have already ratified the treaty in their national parliaments.

The lesson is it is much easier to buy off politicians than citizens.  Sadly, it seems that only Ireland actually has a referendum on EU policy…wonder why that is?
