Euro Politicians mock the electorate

One of the truisms of war, politics and other contested areas of
life, is that it always serves you well to look at what the other side
are saying or doing. This is particularly apposite when they the other
side are replete with confidence. To that end I bring you a collection
of quotes from yesterday’s European parliamentary Constitutional Affairs Committee.

All the Constitution is there! Nothing is missing!
Jean-Louis Bourlanges (Liberal, France)

We kept the substance of the Constitution
Jo Leinen MEP, Committee President (Socialist, Germany)

We have the same thing but we regressed for transparency and clearness
Enrico Baron Crespo MEP (Socialist, Spain)

It's incredible to see all what they slipped under the carpet!
Gérard Onesta MEP (Green, France)

Formally, it's not a constitution but it's a big step to the constitution
Carlos Carnero MEP (Socialist, Spain)

Our political union finally has a Constitution
Johannes Voggenhuber MEP (Green, Austria)

Can we have a referendum please?
