Jouyet calls for 'legal arrangement' if Irish vote down Lisbon Treaty

PARIS (Thomson Financial) - A 'legal arrangement' between Ireland and the 26 other members of the European Union must be reached should Irish voters reject the Lisbon EU reform treaty, said French secretary of state for European affairs Jean-Pierre Jouyet on Friday.

Should they vote against the treaty, Jouyet told news channel LCI the most important thing is for the process of ratification to continue in other countries and to see what kind of legal arrangement can be reached with the Irish.

I was under the impression that if one country objected to it it would be scrapped. It seems the EU make up their own rules as they go along.
