That's all very well, and there ain't much in what you said with which I disagree: even if we reject the Euro-'constitution' they will somehow find some way in which to foist it upon us anyway.
However, I don't know if you've seen ICM's latest polls on the official Euro-question. Apparently, the No campaign is ahead by only 2%. The results were as follows:
Hooray, let's destroy our nation, Mr Blair will be pleased [yes]: 39%
Piss off you garlic-munching, fish-stealing, lamb-burning workshy bastards [no]: 41%
D'uh? Whaddayamean? Woss a consitooshuun? [don't know]: 20%
This leads me to worry that we'll just pass the thing anyway, since only about 5% of the population will read it and the government will spend so much of our own money on convincing us that it means something completely different from what the Europeans say that it means, that we will blindly sign away our freedoms to a polyglot bureaucracy which meets in secret in a foreign capital.

I did indeed see this poll at the weekend, and it did induce much frothing at the mouth and involuntary limb movements. However, I am hopeful that the results form some kind of aberration, as they run contrary to most other polls undertaken on the subject. It leads me to believe that the sample was taken at the Liberal Democrat party conference.
I like to believe that the people of this country, despite voting for Blair twice, are not that stupid, and are firmly in the “burn jacques santer at the stake” camp rather than the “corruption, unaccountability, dictatorship: Oui, Merci” camp.
I certainly hope my conception is based on an inherent understanding of the mood of the British people, and is not based on a misguided delusion, for all our sakes.
