Lettre ouverte à l'UE : nous avons un problème avec la Constitution
Note: the French translation of the original letter which was on this page can still be found here. Although I do not think that anything I wrote there was fundamentally wrong, the criticism on the proposed European Constitution had in fact little to do with what happened in the Council session of 7 March 2005. Although the Constitution does not address the problems which arose there, it would not have made things worse either. Additionally, although it was clear we had the rules on our side, they found ways around them anyway. Our primary need is a change of attitude at the Council, and that's completely independent from any treaty or Constitution.
The English version of the new letter is available here.
