Say no to Europe: Sensible civil servant surfaces
(Try saying that ten times fast.)
There may yet be hope for this country:
'A staff member of the finance ministry asked not to be named as he admitted that he would be voting No. "There should have been a referendum on the euro, there should be a referendum on Turkish entry," he said. "I'm voting against the constitution because politicians cannot tell me why I should be voting for it."'
And since there are plenty of reasons to vote against it, the choice really shouldn't be that hard. Read the full article from today's Daily Telegraph here.

Arjan, it is the duty of all Europeans (the ones who CAN vote for it, anyway) to vote for the world's only 500+ page constitution that no one, even the authors, fully understand. Don't you realize this? :-)
Seriously, I don't understand why this needs to be 500+ pages. I realize that most Europeans hate America, but won't you please at least glance at the US Constitution and learn that a constitution should consist of basic principles applicable to everyone, rather than the proposed insane EU constitution that goes so far as drilling down to the rights of goat farmers in Alsace to regularly apply for EU subsidies?
