I'd be interested, but it has been discussed a little before and the consensus wasn't positive.

I don't have a lot of capital, but I'd probably get involved.

For what it matters, this referendum will be a lot more consequential both in the short term (for ireland) and long term (for europe) than some of the others. There will be no second chance with this one.

Right now it looks like it could be really close. The polls say the yes side has a slight lead, although the campaign is only really beginning, and the no argument always finishes strong.

The debate goes like this:

Yes: "We should do it because we have no other option, if we vote no we're cast out of the safety net and will sink on the financial markets"

No: "Having a gun pointed to your head is no way to change the constitution."

That no argument could resonate a lot better than the reasoned dull argument about banks and bonds.
