"Twenty-five of the EU's 27 member states have agreed to join a fiscal treaty to enforce budget discipline. The Czech Republic and the UK refused to sign up. UK Prime Minister David Cameron said his government would act if the treaty threatened UK interests. ... The Czechs cited 'constitutional reasons' for their refusal, France's President Nicolas Sarkozy said." (01/30/12)
