Hold on there, Czechs!
The Czech Republic is still holding out against ratifying the Lisbon Treaty - or at least their President, Vaclav Klaus is. He has succeeded in forcing his government to negotiate opt-outs to the treaty, though even if these demands are met it is not certain he will agreed to the ratification. His opponents are calling for his impeachment, and the situation seems to be very confused. This could mean that the treaty would not come into force until after our General Election, which in its turn would mean a referendum for us, IF the Conservatives are elected, and IF David Cameron keeps his promise.
