Czech President Vaclav Klaus on Tuesday became the European Union's final leader to sign a bitterly contested Lisbon reform treaty into law after the country's top court said it did not conflict with the constitution.

Klaus, under growing pressure from other European leaders, said he signed the treaty into law only hours after the Czech Republic's Constitutional Court rule that the treaty is legal.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said after the court's verdict, "I hope that (ratification) can be done very soon and I hope that Europe can set aside years of constitutional and institutional debate... and that we can move forward and deal with the main issues that the European Union must now face."
European Commission head Jose Manuel Barroso also said "no further unnecessary delays should prevent the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty."

He argued that if the EU has its own military capability, people will think Nato is redundant and Europe "can take care of their own defence".
Last year Ireland voted no. Well one year later, Ireland caved.
And now Poland. Clearly Obama's abandonment of Eastern Europe has sent Kaczynski running into the arms of the greater of two evils.
