Czech's call for second reading of Lisbon

The Lisbon Treaty Referendum was sent for a second reading last week by the Czech Chamber of Deputies. The Communist KSCM party had put forward a Bill for the second reading, and it was successful. So I never thought I'd ever say this, but well done the Communists! (I promise never to say that again!).

If the Czech President is successful in ending the ratification process of the Lisbon Treaty, then it will be a another successful blow to the institutions of the European Union, who will surely begin to doubt whether they should continue with their dream of an EU Superstate.

Along with the No votes in Holland, France, Ireland and a recent No vote on the Euro in Poland, perhaps the Czech's can deal the final crushing blow to the EU and finish them off with a great right hook to its Constitutional Treaty!
