"Arse wipes" in denial

Reported by Euobserver Hans-Gert Pottering, the leader of the largest faction in the European Parliament, called for the ratification process of the EU Constitution to be "suspended for a while" during Wednesday's (8 June) keynote debate on the treaty in Strasbourg.

German member Jo Leinen saying "the constitution is not dead, it's still alive, because we haven't heard of a better alternative".

Spanish left-wing Enrique Baron Crespo questioned the relevance of the French and Dutch votes on the grounds that they were largely expressions of no confidence on the national governments. "The French 'no' vote should not be as good as a veto"

European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso mirrored Mr Baron Crespo's arguments, saying the recent 'no' votes were marred by considerations of national issues and noted that "it would be a false solution to abandon the project of the constitutional treaty".

They just don't get democracy do they, its this sort of politics that leads to the 'ballot box and the GUN' When you vote with a 7.62 mm round, "NO means DEAD".
