Have Your Say: How would you vote in the referendum if you could?

Have you have been following the debate on the Fiscal Treaty? How would you vote if you could, and why? Or is the referendum irrelevant to you?

On May 31st, Irish citizens (well, those still living in Ireland that is) will go to the polls to vote on the Fiscal Treaty.

In this week’s discussion forum, we want to know whether you have been following the debate from outside the country. How would you vote if you could, and why? Or is the referendum on the Treaty irrelevant to you?

If you are an advocate of voting rights for emigrants, do you think referenda should be included, or just general/presidential elections?
