No EU constitution - for now

Dutch 'no' vote wins easily in high-stakes referendum heads Expatica.

And it's true. Inspite of Left, Center- and rightwing parties urging, cajoling, almost threatening the Dutch to vote Yes, they voted No.

I wonder how long it will take until they either force it upon us. Or revise it ever so slightly and then implement it without further consultation. Or even just keep asking us the same question until we accept defeat.

It's good to see the Dutch come to the polling both in such numbers. I am worried though that the desillusion will be huge when they see it didn't make any difference.

I'm very happy that the French and the Dutch said no. I cannot believe the proposed Constitution and changes. What, Germany AND Turkey making decisions for all of us? TURKEY? And no more rotativity? And European law superceding National one? Go home.

I've heard of relativity. I've even heard of retentivity. But rotativity?
Is that like being rotative?
heh.

PS: I'm not convinced that the French and the Dutch agreeing on something is necessarily a good thing...

"And European law superceding National one? Go home".

It already does (unfortunately, in some cases). But hopefully they stop making more European laws. There's no way they can see to it that everybody in every country abides by these laws. For example laws on food hygiene. Who knows what a butcher in easters Slovakya does whith his meat?! Or a fish monger in north Lithouania...
