Lisbon treaty...

...the BBC is carrying the story that the Czech Constitutional Court has ruled that the Lisbon Treaty is in-line with the constitution of the Czech Republic, paving the way for known Euro-sceptic President Vaclav Klaus to sign the treaty.

I'm not going to talk about this issue myself; but I will post a picture of the Holy Father (depicting what I did when I read what the Czech Republic was going to do) and a video which I found when I was a politics student (A-Level) and which I subsequently sent to both my lecturers, who subsequently showed it to the class as an example of the House of Commons ‘in action.’



The fact that the Foreign Secretary laughs makes me smile...

Thank you for posting this. Very amusing! No matter on which side of the House your sympathies lie, you have to admire the speaking skills of someone like William Hague. Humour can be a great weapon.
