Spinning the Treaty

The Government have produced a short video as part of their public 'information' campaign in the run-up to the referendum on the Fiscal Treaty on 31 May. Whether or not the content of stabilitytreaty.ie and the video aforementioned is best described as 'information' or as 'lopsided propaganda for the Yes side funded by public monies in contravention of the the McKenna judgment' has been the subject of some debate. Sinn Féin and the Socialist Party are both currently seeking legal advice on the matter.

In the meantime, the CounterSpin Collective have produced their own version of the Government's 'information' video, which is embedded below, along with the original. {jathumbnailoff}
