[Fsfe-ie] Tuesday's Council vote in doubt?

It seems that Poland has clarified that they abstained on Tuesday, and
given this, Denmark, who were rather shamelessly bullied into a "yes"
vote by the Irish Presidency, could have caused the qualified majority
to fail had they abstained.
Very interestingly, according to that press release (and it is the first
mention I have heard of it), there are ongoing attempts in the Dutch
parliament to retract their vote, and if this succeeds, the qualified
majority could still fail.
Could it be true that Tuesday's battle is not yet lost? Does anyone
have more information on this?
