Lisbon Treaty: State of Play, April 3rd

I think I will be updating this list alot for the next month or so. One of the potential obstacles, I highlated, for the treaty was overcome when Poland ratified the treaty this week! It passed the Sejm with a wopping majority of 326 votes!! (384 for, 56 against) It passed the Senate 74 votes to 17. Thank you Poland. Seven down, twenty to go!
