As much as Black Jacques Chirac can be a jackhole, I’ve got give him cred for at least letting his people vote on this EU thing. From what I understand, he could have sent it to parliament for an easy win. That’s what most of the EU countries do. My take is this: as long as the Franco-Prussian alliance was running the EU, the French were happy. Now the unwashed masses in Lithuania and Estonia etc. are jumping in, the French want to take their ball and go home. Well, duh! Would Americans want the Guatemalans and Hondurans etc. to dictate trade and immigration policy in the U.S.? It’s good to see the people of a country stand up and say “non” to an overbearing nanny-state government.
