Ahern: 'Lisbon rejection would be act of lunacy'

Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has told an audience in the United States that it would be an "act of lunacy" for Ireland to reject the Lisbon Treaty.

Mr Ahern was speaking at Harvard University in Boston last night, where he said Ireland must choose whether to "whistle in the dark or be at the centre of things".

His speech focused on the Lisbon Treaty and he appealed to the Irish people not to reject the treaty when they go to the polls next month.
