In deciding whether to vote YES or NO on the fiscal treaty I have focused in on one question i.e.

” Will voting YES or NO be best for jobs?”

I am clear that the answer to this question is unequivocally YES. Specifically I believe a YES vote increases the likelyhood of new multinational companies coming to Ireland and existing ones expending their presence here. This in turn will give rise to jobs in the indigenous companies big and small who provide services to these multinational companies.

I am not persuaded by many of the arguments on other aspects of the treaty by proponents and opponents but I am very clear on the jobs issue which is why I will be be voting YES on May 31st.
