By a comfortable margin, and with a big turnout, the voters of France have rejected the draft constitution for the EU. This means that the whole constitution drafting process must begin again. Big deal, that.

This one is easy to make a stupid comment about (I may have thoughtful ones another time):

France surrenders . . . TO NON!

In other (surely unrelated) news, the German army has begun a series of "training manouvers" near the Belgian border.

But for real: any time the major trade unions and hard left groups are on the same side of an argument as The Economist (all of those three and more said this was a bad constitution), then you gotta reckon it must be bad.

And any time a constitution is 200 pages long . . .
