EU Constitution - there's something for everyone in here though excalibur - 20/04/2004 11:04:02 AM

The UK is to have a referendum on the treaty and I am wondering about the other EU countries. I am interested in everybody’s perspective - there are some questions for Americans and others down the bottom, but feel free to answer any questions that you want to.

1) What country are you from?

2) Are you having a referendum on the proposed EU constitution? If you don't do you think you should?

3) Have you read the constitution?

4) I have read parts (because I don't trust the BBC or any other news outlet to portray it in an unbiased fashion). I plan on reading it fully. Would you find it useful for me to make post summaries and what I think the implications are of the various articles?

5) If there were a referendum tomorrow how would you vote (assume just a yes or no question – yes to accept, and no to reject)?

6) Do you plan on voting in the European elections in the summer?


For those that are having a referendum:

7) Do you think that your government will set a simple, unbiased question just about the EU constitution?


For the Americans & others:

The EU is getting to a scale where it can compete with the US economically. The EU is enlarging from 15 to 25 countries this year. At this point it will be bigger than the US in terms of population and the economic gap will diminish even more, possibly, over time to a situation where it will be bigger than the US.

a) What is your impression of the EU at the moment?

b) Do you know much about it?

c) Does the above (the intro to question 8, i.e. EU getting just as big if not bigger than the US) bother you?

d) Why? / Why not?

e) Do you think it is good to have a counter-balance to the US?

OK, that's about it. Thanks to those of you that take the time to respond - I am really very interested in all your opinions .
