Jacques Chirac’s Poodle

From the Daily Telegraph today:

“We must take the constitution seriously. Mr Blair has made perhaps the most serious blunder of his premiership by signing it. He should have rejected this mind-numbing, 260-page document on principle. It is the capstone of a federal state, and gives the EU a foreign minister, a criminal code, a European prosecutor and a police force. We face a net loss of vetoes in about 40 areas and the constitution sets in stone an outdated, over-regulated economic model just at the moment that it is failing.”
