Yes France!

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4592243.stm

Exit polls suggest that the French have voted to reject the EU constitution. This will be confirmed or not in the next few hours. :D I take back all most of the things I've said about the cheese-eating surrender monkeys!

What do people think this will mean for the future of the constitution, and the EU?

  1. Well done The French! They've acted in their own national interest as usual – only this time, it happens to be in our national interest as well.

    The people of Europe, in the form of The French, have spoken. No constitution!

  2. Chirac has already stated that they'd just ask the same question again next summer…

  3. Hang on, I thought the EU constitution was a dastardly Franco-German plot to take control of Europe (: Daily Mail etc).

    Looks like nobody told the French that.

  4. The EU constitution is a dastardly bureaucratic plot to drown the entire population of Europe in red tape and pointless forms.

    Or at least that's how it seems when you plough your way through all 27,000,000,000,000 or so words of it.

  5. well we sort of need a constitution if we're gonna compete with the us and asia… but i suppose you lot voted no to the euro (as did my lame countrymen) so you're probably not very keen on european centralization

  6. A constitution may well be a good idea, for a single European state, which politicians in this country still won't admit is the ultimate aim of the EU.

    That doesn't mean that this constitution was any good.

    And you're right, I'm not very keen on european centralisation.
