Your treaties can get to feck. "Where a vote is required on this matter" bollocks. Treaties made by governments where no vote was put out to their people in order to ratify them. "Even the UK government agreed". You still don't get it do you? This is why the PEOPLE of the UK voted out.

You Irish should be happy for people like Mr Ming. Calling this out for what it is.
Every country is entitled to approve treaty changes according to it's own democratic process, the fact that that does not fit with your narrative is something for you to deal with or ignore as you choose, but don't expect to be taken seriously.

The U.K. has a sovereign parliament and it is responsible for treaty ratification, that is how it works for them. Democracies work in different ways deal with it.

The idea that you get to decide how democracy works in each member state and then try to make some kind of point because it does not happen the way you wanted is amusing, but also indicates why your contributions should not be take seriously.
