EU accused of buying 'Yes' votes for Lisbon Treaty

They won't stop till they get the vote they want.

More trouble is brewing for the EU however. Czech Republic 'planning to delay signing Lisbon treaty'

"EU leaders are said to be furious that the Czech Republic is planning to delay signing the Lisbon treaty for up to six months even if the Irish vote "yes" in their referendum next month.

The country might even try to delay it until after the British general election campaign when a Tory victory would see the question put to voters by David Cameron.

Nicolas Sarkozy, who helped to draw up the treaty after the French and Dutch voted against its predecessor, the EU Constitution, has warned Prague that it faces "consequences" if it does not swiftly follow an Irish "yes" with its own ratification. "

Heaven forbid the voters should have a say in how their lives are run. The threat of retaliation from Sarkozy if they don't vote yes, is reason enough to vote no.
