Walesa backs Ireland's Lisbon referendum 'yes'

Text size Aa Aa

Former Polish president and pro-democracy leader of the Solidarity trade union Lech Walesa has been in Ireland to lend his support to the campaign to get the Lisbon Treaty passed.

Walesa has been challenged over his appearances with the group Libertas which is against the treaty.

But he rejects the criticism, saying he disagrees with the anti-treaty camp’s ways of going about changing what is wrong with the EU.

Walesa likened Europe’s need for the treaty to that of a car in need of a driver – any driver.
