EU Treaty: Václav Klaus + October 2 Irish ref = ???

EU Lisbon Treaty: Václav Klaus + October 2 Irish ref = ???

Václav Klaus, the Eurosceptic libertarian president of the Czech Republic, is threatening to delay the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, assuming the new Irish ref. is a "Yes" one, before the end of the year. As President of the Czech Rep., his signature is needed.

That may also delay the assumption of duty by the new group of Commissioners, and the existing team may have to assume a caretaker role after its official mandate expires on October 31, 2009.
