The Dutch government is getting frightened. They've allocated an extra 3.5 million euros for pro-constitution propaganda. It's a good thing that (thanks to Europe) this hardly buys you a sandwich anymore these days. Meanwhile, they keep on repeating the same old arguments why we should vote in favour.
Because we'll get left behind in Europe. A lie - every country that ever threw a tantrum in the EU only got more perks. Think Thatcher.
Because we'll get another Auschwitz. A lie - rejecting the constitution only keeps the EU in its current state. It doesn't disolve the Union.
And because this isn't about the euro. The biggest lie of all.
True, rejecting the constitution won't bring back the guilder. But we were cheated back then. First, by allowing Greece into the Economical and Monetary Union while their economy didn't meet the criteria. Second, by diluting the guilder to 90 percent of its real value only to please Germany.
We were robbed. And you simply don't make new deals with people who've cheated you in the past without them having made amends or even having offered an apology.
In other words, saying that this referendum isn't about the euro is the same as a salesman telling you there's nothing wrong with his camper vans, while you are still paying off the garage bills for the crappy car he sold you back in 1999.
(So there's still no reason yet not to declare war on Iran.)
