Czechs Holding The Line?

Thursday, 8 October 2009

Just heard that Vaclav Klaus is set to delay full ratification of the Lisbon Treaty by asking that a 'footnote' be added to the document, a move that will give further hope that the Czech Republic might, just might hold up the procedure long enough to see a Referendum in the UK if, as expected, the Conservatives are elected next May.

I don't have any further info, but this may be a ray of light following Ireland's yes vote last week. Here's hoping.

UPDATE - I wonder if the Speccy are readers of VOTR?

One of my Polish co-workers today scoffed after reading a Polish web news report.

She tells me that The Polish President was due to sign Sunday. However, the "military minister" (not sure who that is) has been inviting dignitaries for the signing, but on Saturday. Since I have been home I see Sky News are also now saying Poland will sign Saturday.

She is a Lisbon fan, and not a fan of the President... her feeling is that the Polish President will want to be the very last signatory so that, as per her impersonation, he can say "I now give this treaty to Europe" in a grand manner.

Perhaps he could be convinced to hold off if President Klaus has delayed further (?)

I wish Klaus the best of luck but word was yesterday that the Czech Constitutional Court had already thrown out a second challenge to ratification. Is your post referring to yet another challenge, LE? If so, Klaus will probably keep throwing challenges at them for as long as it takes - here's hoping...

Is this really the way to play the last act of the past hundred years of European history ?

Europe of the Twentieth Century will be seen as 1914-2009.
