  • 4 Veto

    "Запрещаю"; запрет, вето.
    Выражение "налагать вето" на чье-либо решение, т. е. приостанавливать его исполнение, заимствовано из юридической практики времен римской республики. Уполномоченные плебса - народные трибуны, имели право налагать veto на решения консулов и сената, если эти решения были направлены против интересов плебса.
    Тов. Егоров, признавая нежелательным шероховатости, стоит за простое большинство при отсутствии мотивированного veto. Тов. Попов не согласен ни с комиссией, ни с тов. Егоровым и требует либо простого большинства (без права veto), либо единогласия. (В. И. Ленин, Шаг вперед, два шага назад.)
    Достаточно самого небольшого знакомства с "муниципальным социализмом" на Западе, чтобы знать, как всякая попытка чуточку затронуть капитал вызывает всегда и безусловно решительное veto центральной власти буржуазного государства. (Он же, Аграрная программа социал-демократии в первой русской революции 1905-1906 годов.)
    Печальная и самобытная фигура Чаадаева резко отделяется каким-то грустным упреком на линючем и тяжелом фоне московской high life. [ высший свет (англ.) - авт. ] Я любил смотреть на него середь этой мишурной знати ветреных сенаторов, седых повес и почетного ничтожества. Десять лет стоял он, сложа руки, где-нибудь у колонны, у дерева на бульваре, в залах и театрах, в клубе и - воплощенным veto, живой протестацией смотрел на вихрь лиц, бессмысленно вертевшихся около него. (А. И. Герцен, Былое и думы.)
    Ты очень хорошо знаешь, как бы мне хотелось тебя видеть, но именно образ твоего предложения меня заставляет положить veto - ты можешь писать все, что тебе скажет сердце. (Он же - А. А. Герцену, 5.III 1860.)
    Она любила тайком, украдкой, про себя, робко, чуть заметно... любовь для нее была контрабандой, чувством, на которое было наложено жестокое veto. Ей не позволено было любить. (А. П. Чехов, Зеленая коса.)
