It's a treaty, which is like a contract, except you can break it whenever you like.
The point however seems to be that the European Parliament has decided that there's no need to have the treaty professionally examined to see if it's fair to EU citizens, and so presumably is just assuming that it is. So the vote is likely to be yes. Odd that the Register hints otherwise. I think it might be some kind of intelligence test.
