Cowen gets ready to give in

It's official. In December, the Irish government plans to tell its EU friends it will make the Irish hold a second referendum on the Lisbon Treaty next autumn.

From the Sunday Business Post:

According to political and official sources in Dublin and Brussels, Cowen is likely to indicate to his fellow heads of government that the government will hold a second referendum next autumn, but only if it believes that such a vote can be passed.
