Welcome to Librarium Online!
As we have the leeway to talk about politics here I thought I'd bring this up, what do you guys think of the constitution, are you from one of the countries that has had a referendum on it?
In the UK its getting a fairly bad press most of the time at the moment, but I don't know a lot about it, what I hear is all emotionally charged and has little real substance to it, do any of you have an opinion?
Well, I am fairly pro-europe and I feel that anything that can help the countries within the european union work better together is a good thing.
As far as I am aware the new european constitution is mainly about streamlining the processes within the processes of the EU goverment. It is a worry that formly very "pro-european" countries like France would reject the constitution. If it had gone to a vote in countries who were less european like England
it would have been destroyed.
At the moment I think the EU is in sort of limbo, with a large amount of members but with a goverment too unweldy to actually get anything done. How do you fix that? I haven't the foggest................
I live in Greece, and I don't know about the other EU countries but here we have very little information about what is the the new European constitution.
I currently assume that the bad reputation that the EU constitution has over here, is a result of the scanty information supplied by our government and our national media.

MEAT IS MURDER
I think that is one of the problems with the EU, too many of your average joes in the street feel like the EU has no effect on their lives.
If someone asked you for instance "What laws have the EU goverment made that benifit your life?" I know I for one would not be able to answer and I don't think many people would. While I know they do stuff, what the stuff actually is? A mystery...............
The only laws I can think of effected by the EU are the minimum wage laws, all in all like you have both said I have little to no idea what the EU do and as such am neitehr really for or against the whole thing as an idea or ideal, I would like to know more, but have no idea where to get such information. All I find is propoganda and counter propoganda. This leads me on to another thought, which is kind of off topic for this thread so I will switch it to a new one.
