Pushes Ahead
Despite "No" Vote
Of Electorate

From Brussels Journal:

One year after the “no” votes, the leaders of the EU have decided to make the text binding by 2009. The new Italian government says it interprets the “no” votes as “a demand for more Europe, not less”.

The Belgian Prime Minister
Guy Verhofstadt suggests changing the rules so that the European Constitution may be adopted by a qualified majority vote.

The Austrian Chancellor
Wolfgang Schuessel says that ratification should be completed in 2007.

Angela Merkel says the text is “vital to German interests”.

The European Commission plans to push ahead with as much of the constitution as it can, with or without formal approval.

In a Democracy government is "for the people, by the people, and of the people." The EU is trying to subvery the authority of the people.

What do you call it when a group of people try to take over power from those who are in power without resorting to a Democratic election?

It's called a Coup d' Etat.

That's what is going on in Europe.
