    Irish voters are about to go to the polls for a second time to decide the fate of the Treaty of Lisbon. On 2 October the outcome of the referendum will determine whether or not the EU, after eight years of debate and numer-ous false starts, can finally adopt a new basic treaty. What are the chances of success? Here are a brief look at the ratification process, the mood in Ireland, and the consequences of the economic crisis-and five scenarios of what might happen if there is another No vote.
