Irish voters apparently reject EU treaty

As always, Europeans reject EU transnationalism whenever they are given the chance to vote on it. (Via Instapundit.) Having learned from the past, no other EU nation allowed a public vote on the Lisbon treaty, but Ireland’s constitution requires one.

UPDATE: The vote was 53%-47%, similar to when they rejected the Nice treaty 54%-46% in 2001. That time they made a highly controversial second attempt a year later in which the treaty passed.
