Heres an early report from the Washington Post on Frances rejection of the EU Constitution.
The vote was 56% to 43%. This is said to be a major defeat for Jacque Chirac.
I dont know much about this but it seems a good thing. The EU Constitution is about 300 pages which means the rule of bureaucrats not self-government. And, a major factor seems to be that many Frenchmen believe they are losing control of their country to immigrants and that approving the EU Constitution would further that loss.
The decisive factor was that Schramm has been out of town for a week.
