Je ne le comprends pas

Chirac has chosen Bastille Day to announce that France too will hold a referendum on the Euro-Constitution. And rightly so.

But isn't there something a bit bizarre about all the Constitution coverage? Effectively, the thing is either adopted by everyone, or adopted by noone. And if I'm not very much mistaken, the UK is highly unlikely to be approving it, since the great unwashed are going to be given their say there too.

So really, what's all the fuss about? Or should that be, why is the fuss about the wrong thing?

And speaking of the day that was in it, Yglesias discusses the best national anthem there is.
