The counting started at 9.00 and the Nos are daring to hope as the famed Irish tallymen report many working class and rural areas voting against Lisbon.  As against that, the prosperous classes came out in force to vote Yes in smart areas of Dublin and leafy Kildare.  Turn-out is in the late 40s which can be argued to favour either side.  We might know by lunchtime.
