Is that hot air I hear leaking out of the Euro balloon, or hot air being blown into it?
G. Mason tagline, sellout seven all RINOS.
ken5050: I believe this is correct. While the Dutch public were voting 'no', the 'parliament' of Latvia, voted 'yes', 71 to 5 in favour of the E.U. charter.
To be adopted, the E.U. Constitution must be approved by all 25 countries in the bloc, which began 53 years ago as a six-member economic grouping. Latvia was the tenth country to approve the document.
Many people who voted against the charter in France and the Netherlands cited fear that their nations would be submerged in a European super-state at the price of their heritage and traditions. Margret Thatcher stated prior to being sold out by her own party, and I am paraphrasing - 'Relinquishing the Pound is tantamount to giving up our national sovereignty to them' (Germany). She was right on target, but back stabbing pro-E.U. Tories had other ideas, which hopefully will never see the light of day.
Or the EU cookie crumbling. Have a peek here to see that Italy wants the Lira back.
