Prime Time will be taking questions from folks about the Lisbon Treaty via YouTube. They will play the best ones for a high-profile EU politician (to be confirmed tomorrow morning) and have him/her answer those questions.
The special â€˜interactiveâ€™ segment will air on next Tuesdayâ€™s Prime Time and the full version will be posted on RTÃ‰.ie/Lisbon.
I believe this is an exclusive. Well done to RTE for doing this and giving people the chance to ask questions. Hopefully if it’s successful we might see more of this happen with a very conservative RTE. I’m sure the progressive people in there would be able to do more with a positive reaction to it. It’d be great to see the Prime Time segment go up on YouTube too!
I wonder will they air Jim Corr’s concerns? Let’s see Captain Europe wriggle his way out of that one.
[…] user. Super duper stuff, and exactly what I was getting at in the rte embed post. Super hero Damien Mulley has a comment on it too. Digg this […]

It looks as if the “No” vote will be carried. This is probably because Ireland ultimately belongs psychologically to the larger Anglo-Saxon lingusitic World. Many people who have spoken on mainstream radio recently seem to feel insecure in relation to the shifting territories of the New Europe. Invoking the spirit of Edmund Burke and looking at the past like some pro-European analysts do is no longer enough to bring a sense of solidarity. However it is very encouraging to see the democratic process in full operation here. There is a useful debate in operation on Techfocus, The Lounge at the moment. It really would be great if everybody who has a vote could turn out.
I just watched the video on Youtube that shows the protest demanding referendums in other EU countries. Will anyone raise the question of why Ireland is the only democratic state in the union at this point in time? And should we vote NO in order to insist on this right for our fellow states?
