ABSTRACT
¦ SELLING a Yes vote in the Fiscal Compact referendum presents the Government with a dilemma. The most powerful argument for signing up is that only signatories to the compact will have access to the eurozone bail-out fund - and we will almost certainly need another bail-out when the current one runs out. However, it is Government policy to insist that we won't need a second bail-out and that the bond markets will greet us with open arms next year. We can't have it both ways, though, and getting this referendum passed may require a little dose of honesty about our financial state.
