North Sea Diaries on the French Referendum

Another reason for me not to comment on the French Referendum, North Sea Diaries has a much better analysis than I could produce, including a map of the voting patterns. To summarise, the French voted Yes where the EU gives them loads of money (Brittany, Paris, and Strasbourg), and No where the EU's poor economic performance has cost jobs (the North-East particually but pretty well everywhere that isn't getting EU money thrown at it really).
