EU Referendum

Luxembourg backs the EU constitution, but not in a big way only getting 55% of the vote. In a country where 40% of the population is dependent of the EU for employment, has been subject to (the usual) barrage of pro-EU propaganda, and voting is compulsory this is not a ringing endorsement. Only 25% of the people that are not in the pay of the EU voted for it. They should have been able to get at least 70%. Not that this would have made a difference had the vote been 0%, the consititution will be implememented, then ratified post facto.
