Though, to be fair, I think all the nations except Germany that ratified in parliament without a referendum would've easily approved the constitution if a referendum were held.
Germany would've been close and might've defeated it. Sweden is the only other nation that's not holding a referendum where I think it would get defeated if they did hold one. It might get close in Austria or Finland too, if they held one.
My guess is that Ireland, Denmark, and certainly Britain will all vote no.

You can read the entire EWWW Constitution HERE
If you really want to. It has over 400 articles...one of the most interesting is that the "EWWW" can take away your personal property if it is in the public interest...compensation is optional...like taking your house, guns, cars etc... Just how high will their unemployment rates go before they realize you can't tax yourselves into freedom. Too many deadbeats, too much time off, too much socialism over there... G

We haven't given up in Sweden trying to force our politicos to grant us a referendum.
On the other hand it may well be that after 17 June there will not be a need for one. However, vigilance is needed. If they don't get their dastardly constitution they will try to force a lot of the statutes through anyway - common foreign policy, an EU diplomatic corps, common defence policy and defence force - all of these things are decided on in the constitution but have ALREADY been implemented to a larger or smaller degree.
Quite honestly you can't get closer to treason than our political elites have done this last decade.
