Undead Constitution

The FT's EU blog has a surgestion on how to raise the EU Constitution from the grave. Disguise it's implications and make it look like as boring a document as possible, in short lie. Which would probably work, it has in the past.

But if they want to do this then they will have to be quick as Vaclav Klaus is approaching with a stake in his hand and a gleam in his eye. He will only accept a version that transfers responsibility from the EU to the member states, and the chances for that are about as good as those of a pretty girl in a Hammer Horror movie. Transferring power back to the member states is simply not part of the nature of the beast.
