Polish President refuses to sign Lisbon Treaty

The Polish President, Lech Kaczynski has said that it would be ‘pointless’ to sign the Lisbon Treaty after Ireland voted against ratification last month. The German President, Horst Koehler, has delayed ratification until legal challenges have been concluded in the country’s high court. In the apt words of Nikolas Sarkozy: “Something isn’t right. Something isn’t right at all.’ In his capacity as new European President, Mr Sarkozy will be coming to Dublin, giving Irish voters another valuable opportunity to voice their concerns over Lisbon and the future of Europe.
