Meanwhile, the debate continues over the EU’s draft ‘constitution’ and as to whether it should need to be approved by referendum (of course it should). There’s some good background here. It’s worth contrasting the anguished discussion as to whether to allow EU voters a say on this matter with the recall vote in California. There may indeed be some problems with the recall procedure, but, credit where credit’s due, it reflects a political culture far more democratic than anything found in Brussels. I know which I prefer.
