Steyn pots the Euroweenies

Mark Steyn is having some fun here this morning at the expense of the Euroweenies and Eurofetishists, who have yet to realise Europe has mired itself in a bureaucratically centralised pseudo-state. Yesterday's 'Non!' vote was an expression of voters' "reluctance to be bossed around by a regulatory regime that insists a one-size-fits-all rulebook can be applied from Ballymena to the Baltics."

Says Steyn:
The American constitution begins with the words "We the people". The starting point for the EU constitution is: "We know better than the people." After that, the rest doesn't matter: you can't do trickle-down nation-building.
