Conservative MEP Sean Kelly, in favour of the fiscal discipline treaty, goes head to head with Socialist MEP Paul Murphy arguing for a No. Analyst Hugo Brady from the Centre for European Reform says Irish people are angry after three years of "EU-enforced austerity". He thinks the fiscal treaty will pass - but only just. The referendum will take place on 31 May.
