Man kan säga mycket om Frankrikes nye president Sarkozy, men han hymlar i alla fall inte med att skälet till att han inte vill låta folket rösta om den nya EU-grundlagen.
”France was just ahead of all the other countries in voting no. It would happen in all member states if they have a referendum. There is a cleavage between people and governments,” he said.
”A referendum now would bring Europe into danger. There will be no Treaty if we had a referendum in France, which would again be followed by a referendum in the UK.”
Tänk om Reinfeldt vore lika ärlig…
