Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is from my Facebook feed today:

Pundits proclaim that Lithuania is a first world country. People ironically remember blatant illegality of the referendum:

The biggest concern for the yes campaign was whether turnout would reach the 50% required for the referendum to be valid. After the first day of voting turnout was only 30% and both the President and Prime Minister appeared on TV to urge Lithuanians to vote. There was a surge in voting on the Sunday with many people voting after church services. Lithuanian supermarkets also had a campaign on the second day of voting, offering cheaper beer, chocolate and soap to those who showed they had voted. In the end there were queues outside some voting booths and turnout was over 60%, safely over the required level.[
