REFERENDUM: Results & Presidential Statement

Day 1,895, 02:18 Published in Ireland Ireland by Brian Boru

After the removal of spoiled votes, on the question of whether or not Ireland should join the Circle of Trust:

Yes 32 36%
No 51 57%
Abstain 6 7%

Spoiled votes included votes by other people, the votes of multis, duplicate votes, and votes en masse for a single answer in a very short period of time.

Despite a number of spoiled votes, their inclusion would not have altered the overall result.

The Senate shall convene later today to discuss the ramifications of the result, as well as whether or not to lay the CoT issue to rest.

Therefore, in the name of the Senate and People of Ireland, I declare the proposal to join the Circle of Trust defeated.

Presidential Statement:
I thank all those who voted for doing so, as well as Damhnaic, the Minister for Community for aiding in the carrying out of this referendum.

Ireland has given a clear answer to the question set before us. It is an answer we cannot ignore as a country, nor I as President. I think it has become clear that the unease people felt with removing alliances with established friends was the main factor in the result laid before us. Perhaps that was justified.

On the other hand, Ireland remains without a formal alliance. This will present a number of challenges for the remainder of the term, as well as the next term.

I am sure we can all meet those challenges together.

Brian Boru

Very disappointing.
I guess we'll wander in boredom the next few months...

Can we have open voting result?

No surprise really. Ireland does need to be in an alliance so I guess there is but one choice. Time for some diplomacy I think. At least no-one can complain that the referendum was fair and just.

Thanks Brian

A very decisive and clear defeat.

For what we know you got scared and decide to back down with framing only to repeat same referendum about CoT later where it will be accepted.

Just show open voting results...only scammers and cowards can be against open voting reults.

Try to be irish for once and show proud of your choice....

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 1,895, 02:50

And why is this indian taxes here?
Malbekh can you finally answer why you against open voting result?
Living in the shadows suits you well?
Can stand clear and fair situations?
That prevent you to frame people for your crimes?

ChewChewShoe Day 1,895, 02:52

Yay Ireland digging her own grave.

This is one of the most stupid decisions I've seen Ireland make since I first came here, and that's really, really bad.
Oh well, you're all going to regret this in a few months time when Ireland's even more dead, pathetic, inactive, insignificant, broke and bored than it is today... Unless of course you're too stupid to make the reference, which is very plausible to be honest.

"Try to be irish for once and show proud of your choice...."

Haha, who are you to question my Irishness?

Death and Taxes

Funny how everyone loves democracy except when people don't do what they're told. Ireland has been EDEN-centred since I joined the game, you can see that Ireland's relationship with EDEN has always been ahead of the curve, that's why we left before everyone else did. But it's obvious that people consider our friendships are based on countries like Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Albania, Norway and BiH and are reluctant to fight against them.

The best thing people can do is to accept the result and move on, working for the country

"Haha, who are you to question my Irishness? "

Well if real irish are corrupted coward people then you are true irish.
Show voting results if you have nothing to hide...or not planning any scam in the future refrendums...

MR. HANK SCORPIO Day 1,895, 03:37

As disappointed as I am, I fully agree with

"The best thing people can do is to accept the result and move on, working for the country"

Politically I will oppose membership to Asgard.

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 1,895, 03:40

Was it one of the Kunts a CP when Ireland attacked Sweden?

You know....the main Reason why Asgard refused Ireland...

It seems coz of some retards in charge of Ireland in the past we are losing great oportunity...

MR. HANK SCORPIO Day 1,895, 03:53

Not going to plague this article by debating Kurgan, I'll just say that there's a history with much more bad blood between Canada and Sweden...

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 1,895, 04:04

All i care are open voting results for all irish referendums......until we have that all voting results like in this crap article are illegal

Viktor Kurgan
Viktor Kurgan Day 1,895, 04:05

Rona1d Day 1,895, 06:47

Asgard rejected Ireland, Klop trolololo

voted, it's hilarious how I totally called it. I said the crybabies who didn't get their way were going to start calling the rest of Ireland stupid. Some people are getting too predictable and should just give up.

The best thing people can do is to accept the result and move on, working for the country x3

MR. PADRAIG PEARSE Day 1,895, 07:45

Irelands so retarded. Now we are going to be neutral and irrelevant for along time to come

MrConway Day 1,895, 08:15

I'm going to accept this result.

Still think it's the wrong move.

FitoEleven Day 1,895, 08:29

I agree with Raven. Also, a country don't need an Alliances to plan a war and have some fun in this game. Ireland still got support of many allies despite not been part of an alliances.

Ronald, I know that hence the face. It never hurts to try again.

Bigmike727 Day 1,895, 09:38

Once again not trying to get involved with eIrish domestics, but yeah this was a terrible decision to make tbh I am quite disappointed how it turned out. Neutrality will only lead to boredom and irrelevance again within eIreland and imo just as ABC ultimately floundered and was reliant on CoT/TWO for damage, the same will happen to Asgard as they are reliant on EDEN for damage currently, so in essence you guys may aswell never left EDEN if you were not willing to join CoT, as you will more than likely still support EDEN/pro-EDEN countries and if worst case happens, a war happens with another power such as eSpain if it turnt in your direction ,for example, you would not have the full support of EDEN countries and a recurrence of the eIrish-ePolish War of earlier this summer would more than likely occur and leave eIreland potentially wiped.

People within a community are always going to have differing opinions on topics. What bothers me is how divided this nation has been and how this referendum has only provided more contentious behavior between the same characters here.

Death and Taxes is right: It's time to move on and work for the country.

Thank you to Brian Boru for the way he has handled this process.

At least we have clear results. I accept the decision not to have a decision achieved through the democratic process.
