Reino Unido: referendo ao Tratado de Lisboa é agora uma possibilidade

"Businessman Stuart Wheeler, a prominent donor to the Conservative Party, is now free to launch a judicial review against the government's decision to ratify the Lisbon treaty without a public vote.
On the same day as Prime Minister Gordon Brown was pondering his local election mauling, High Court judge Robert Owen granted the founder of spread-betting company IG Group permission to launch the challenge.
He ruled the 73 year-old's case was "arguable".
If Wheeler is successful, the government will be forced to hold a referendum
