And now the Czechs will apparently add their vote to Ireland’s! Czech President Vaclav Klaus called the Irish referendum vote a “victory of freedom and reason” and said that “ratification cannot continue”.

“Politicians have allowed the citizens to express their opinion only in a single EU country,” Mr. Klaus said.

His view was echoed in the Czech senate. Premysl Sobotka, Czech senate chairman, also said that there was “no sense” continuing with ratification.

The Czech Republic is one of the EU’s 27 member states, and one of nine which have not yet ratified “the treaty”.
