No, the Danes did not do it

There was no particular reason to suppose that the Danish High Court would decide that the government had gone against the country's Constitution when it signed the Lisbon Treaty, not after the Ministry of Justice had pronounced that everything was just fine on that front, but hope springs eternal be the shoots ne'er so feeble.

This does not appear to be news on the international circuit but this Swedish blog has reported that the Court has decided in favour of the government. My knowledge of Swedish is non-existent but Mr Google gave me the gist of the piece: Article 20, which requires either a referendum or a five sixths majority in Parliament if powers are passed on to a transnational organization, was not "violated". So that's that.
