Poland Will Not Ratify Treaty
This communiqué from Jean-Marie Le Pen is posted at Yves Daoudal's blog:
Jean-Marie Le Pen welcomes the decision of the Polish President Lech Kaczynski not to sign into law the ratification of the Treaty of Lisbon, on grounds that there is "no longer any reason" to do so.
In truth this Treaty has been dead ever since the Irish vote. That is also what Czech President Vaclav Klaus declared.
Poland thus becomes the third country to reject the Treaty, or rather the fifth, since the French people and the Dutch people had already rejected this very text in its preceding form.
This time, only one people was permitted to express its opinion. But this opinion brought about the legal death of the Treaty. The contortions of Nicolas Sarkozy cannot change anything.
Note: I've heard that Germany will not ratify, but I have no definite proof at this time.
Poland was at the final step in the ratification process. Having been an outspoken opponent of many of the obligations (particularly on issues affecting family values and bioethics) placed by the EU on member States, the Polish Parliament nonetheless went ahead with the ratification process, lacking only the final presidential signature. Bravo Poland!
