McCreevy admits most EU voters would reject Lisbon

EU Commissioner Charlie McCreevy says Irish people shouldn't be ashamed about their rejection of the Lisbon Treaty.

Speaking in Dublin this morning, McCreevy admitted that the treaty would have been rejected in most member states if it had been put to a public vote.

He said many EU leaders were glad they had no legal obligation to hold referenda on the treaty in their own countries.
