Sarkozy warns EU expansion

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has said the European Union will not be able to expand further without ratification of the Lisbon treaty.

An EU summit in Brussels has been overshadowed by divisions over the reform treaty – which was rejected by Irish voters in a referendum last week. A decision on what to do next is expected to be postponed until October. The EU leaders, who continue talks on Friday, did agree to scrap diplomatic sanctions against Cuba imposed in 2003.

That’s a …thought, but the reason the Irish rejected the treaty wasn’t just the expansion but a seriously ill EU!
