EU meeting on Irish No

European Union foreign ministers are gathering in Luxembourg for talks on how to respond to the Irish rejection of the Lisbon reform treaty.

Voters in the Irish Republic, the only state to hold a referendum on Lisbon, rejected the treaty by 53.4% to 46.6% last Thursday. The treaty cannot be implemented unless approved by all 27 EU states. But the majority of EU members agree that those who have yet to ratify the treaty should carry on and do so.

They knew it before happen, didn’t they? So why the panic now?
