Vaclav Klaus: “The treaty a step in the wrong direction”

Germans seek to oust Czech president Vaclav Klaus over EU treaty

In faraway Brussels furious diplomats were calling for his impeachment and even his country’s expulsion from the European Union because of his obstinate refusal to sign the Lisbon treaty. Klaus, now the only European leader holding out against ratifying the document, made it clear he did not give a damn.

“I have always considered this treaty a step in the wrong direction,” Klaus said. As he is well aware, the slightest change to the treaty, which was first proposed in 2001, would require all 27 EU member countries to agree.

His remarks were greeted with outrage in Europe. German and French diplomats, in talks with their Czech counterparts, explored two ways of removing the Klaus obstacle: impeach him or change the Czech constitution to take away his right of veto.


Klaus is unlikely to give in without at least some concessions. He is said to want to be seen as the leader who derailed the European project. A comparison is being drawn in Prague with Edvard Benes, the pre-war Czech leader who in 1938 had to flee to Britain after refusing to cede territory to Hitler under the Munich agreement.

Sounds promising!

    Our new Fourth Reich motto in a post-Lisbon Treaty EU appears above. FACT: Three unelected EU Politburos will control the nuclear weapons of the former nations of Britain and France. The 1963 Treaty of Elysee gives Germany effective voting control of the EU. Nuclear weapons are to be controlled by Germany.

    Also, judging by the German response, it seems that Germany is planning to take back lands lost after the last World War they started, and lost , via back door route of the ECJ. What a cowardly thing for Germans to plan.

    Mr. Klaus is right to press for the rights of his nation and people. Isn’t that what a true leader is suppose to do?

  2. Rescue please czech democracy against Vaclav Klaus
    (translated from czech language)

    Good day,

    as a citizen of Czech Republic and among other things also elector of parliament of CR I protest against authoritative behaviour of Mr. Vaclav Klaus, which is not dignified of president of CR. This president exceeds his own competencies, ignores parliament and abuses of naive nationalism of part of czech citizens. That essentially endangers of czech democracy and directs it to authoritative regime. Please parliament and government, don’t retreat in face of him in that even a bit further!

    I strongly protest against a such undignified and despotic behaviour of Mr. Vaclav Klaus and I require that is plainted prosecution of jurisdiction at him, or the best, that is called off for disablement and lossing of goodwill. Thanks You

    addressed to government, parliament and senate of Czech Republic:,,
