The Lisbon Treaty

Posted in Πολιτικά by asyropoulos on 1 Ιουλίου, 2008

Recently, the Czech president said Lisbon Treaty project is over (the Czech Republic joined the EU in the year 2004 and is traditionally one of the more Euro-skeptic of the EU’s 27 member states). Also, the Polish president refuses to ratify Lisbon Treaty as he considers it pointless. And of course, the Irish people have rejected the treaty with a referendum. Since the Czechs are so Euro-skeptics one wonders why the have joined the union in the first place. No one pushed them to enter the EU! And of course the same applies to Poland. It seems that if these nations do not want to see the EU move forward, then they should abandon the ship immediately. And of course, the Irish people are very welcome to join them!

    More exactly, on what grounds do these two individuals oppose the treaty signed by their government and in the case of Poland already convincingly approved by the parliament?

    Something good may come out of this if the EU leaders realise that they have to abandon the liberum veto if the European Union is ever going to be able to defend the interests of its citizens in a globalising world.

    Vaclav Klaus wants his State to be exempt from the Charter of Fundamental Rights that is part of the “Lisbon” amendment to the EU’s basic law. More serious than his exploiting of the leverage he has in representing the only State that has not ratified the amendment, he is imposing his erroneous ideological view of the EU. According to Deutsche Welle, “A staunch euroskeptic, he opposes the treaty as a matter of principle, believing it yields too much sovereignty to the international bloc.” This, in short, is what is really going on here.

    Although I understand there were pluses and minuses discussed in the ratification debate, I want to congratulate my European friends and say, chins up! It is difficult indeed to get unanimity among so many governments. I think it shows strength in Europe. If I haven’t disgusted you sufficiently already, I recommend the following post, http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/the-eu-as-a-partner-for-the-us/
