Splendid. Truly splendid.
Let the political classes take note that the Irish people will not be bullied.
Let the other peoples of the EU, who were so egregiously denied democracy, take note and thank us.
And let us, as a people, be proud.
We have, for now, prevented what effectively would have amounted to a coup d'etats. But when that sleveen creature Barroso murmurs ominously that other countries should continue ratifying what, under the EU's own rules, is now a dead treaty, then there is reason to remain vigilant and concerned.
Why in the hell would any other country waste their time ratifying this trash now, when it has been rejected? If not, that is, for the reason that Barroso hopes to ignore our democratic voice at some stage in the future?
The EU parliament has already appallingly voted to ignore the Irish vote whichever way it went, and refuse to debate it.
Now we're seeing the petulant EU executive's response, which is no different, but significantly more concerning.
If anything ought to convince the waverers that we've done the right thing, then this response is it. These people do not have the interests of Europeans at heart. They have no inclination to respect the voice of democracy. They only want centralised power and will stop at nothing until they get it.
And because of that lust, I am forced to make a sad prediction here and now. This isn't over. They will be back with this treaty a third time to try to force us where they want us to go again.
But for now, we have given them the slap down they badly deserve in their hubris and arrogance.
Well done, Ireland. I'm feckin proud of yiz.
