French EU referendum result

Well the French eventually voted no.

I'm glad that was the outcome, as such an eventuality would make this 'constitution' revert to the drawing board. As I stated in a previous post, the constitution was far overly supranational for my tastes and interventionist for my tastes (which is strange because the French voted no based on contrary views).

I'd personally prefer an EU of sovereign countries that can trade and co-operate freely. I wouldn't like to see a European super-state.
