Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't think the Lisbon Treaty is a bad treaty, but the way the national governments tried to ram it through is off-putting, and the way the public debate on the "Constitution" was muzzled in the run-up to the Spanish referendum really pissed me off.

The only thing I agree with Jerome about regarding these treaties is that they are not being defeated on the content, but on the procedure.
