Freudian slips in the EU debate

The Lords debate has been interrupted by lots of protesters shouting "give us a referendum."

Some interesting little slips from the pro-euro crowd:

Shirley Williams said by failing to provide "information" the pro-integration forces were "as guilty as the Irish".

Sorry - "guilty" of what?

Paddy Ashdown said that "the Irish have made it very clear they want ratification to continue".

Sorry - you mean the Irish Government?

Lots of other bilge about "parliamentary sovereignty" from people who have never been elected too. And the news that the Czechs have suspended their ratification process. Hurray!

Sorry, what is meant by 'the Czech's have suspended ratification'? Is this a new development or are you referring to the referral to the courts? Is there a link?
