Looking at the three EU member states that showed the greatest political reluctance to accept the Lisbon Treaty after the Irish „Yes” we can find completely different patterns in public opinion. In Poland (where the president have already undersigned the Treaty) the society is absolutely supportive to the membership, with 70% seeing the benefits of EU. In the Czech Republic, where president Klaus is delaying the proccess, this rate is also high (61%). On the contrary, in Great Britain, EU-pessimistic voters compose the majority, thus a referendum initiated by the Tories after the elections (rather a threat than a real possibility) could block the treaty in the country.
