Bloody typical, Schroeder tries to change the rules

You can always tell when the Euro-elite are rattled, they attempt to break thgeir own famously leaky rules. This time it is German Chancellor Gerhard 'Grecian 2000'Schroeder who is at it.
The reason for the shakes, Tony Blair's U-turn on the Constitution referendum in the UK. According to reports on AP and EU Observer, he now wants to find a way in which the Constitution can come into force, even if the population votes against it. "We ought to find an arrangement by which the Constitution can still come into force if the process of ratification in a country has not yet been brought to a conclusion".
Eh? What?
Democracy in Europe? Don't make me laugh.
