One Briton already knows which way he’ll vote on the EU Constitution referendum:
The decision over the Constitution is probably the most important Britain has faced since World War II. I will vote against it for several reasons. Most important, a genuinely democratic constitution, like that of the United States, defines the limits of power of the state over the individual. Yet the draft European Constitution is almost entirely about amassing power for a superstate. It is antidemocratic, dangerous and throughly out of date.
What’s shocking here isn’t Anthony Beevor’s opinion of the EU charter. What’s shocking is, his piece was published in today’s New York Times.
