I don't see the value in that.
Their reason for pushing their position is much more likely to be due to
coercion than concern - and we can't compete with coercion.
We have to get a different set of companies to tell the Irish MEPs that this
is not a widely shared position.
The best way to do that would be to get Irish SME representatives into the
parliament this week (especialy Tuesday and Wednesday). I recently tried to
do this on the ILUG list, but no one was willing. From talking to SMEs that
have come to the parliament, they say that a better strategy is to contact
the SMEs (directly, not via ilug) and ask them to come.
(I tried this yesterday at GNU/LinuxTag and 4 SMEs agreed to send people.
None Irish though.)

I thought he stated that he would follow Simon Coveney.
