Sarkozy and the simplified European constitution

Sarkozy went to the European parliament. And it was funny to see how the reactions were on his suggestion for a simplified version of the European constitution. An earlier suggestion by the Dutch was received with a lot skepticism.

I think a simplified version is not going far enough. I think the whole European institute should be scaled down and more of the issues handled in the European parliament should be handled by the local parliaments of the countries.


By the way, France and the Netherlands rejected the constitution. But also by the UK, who cancelled their referendum. The Czech republic, Denmark, Poland and Portugal either cancelled or postponed their decision.
