You can feel the Euromentum!!
Never mind that France and the Netherlands rejected the EU constitution last month -- it's back on track now!!. Sarah Laitner explains in the Financial Times:
Given that neither the French nor the Dutch seem to be suffering from voter's remorse, I'd say the EU constitution has as much mojo right now as..... Joementum.
Indeed, this definition of Joementum perfectly captures Juncker's plight.posted by Dan on 07.11.05 at 12:42 AM
The Big Mo it's not, but it is part of the positioning for whatever comes next. How much tinkering gets done depends a great deal on whether the final score is 23-2 in favor, or 18-7, or 13-12. This last score is as low as it can go, since Luxembourg is the 13th member state to vote in favor.posted by: Doug on 07.11.05 at 12:42 AM [permalink]
Didn't, umm, Malta also just ratify the treaty?posted by: Matt on 07.11.05 at 12:42 AM [permalink]
It is kind of ironic that the only part of Lieberman's campaign that actually had Joementum was the phrase "Joementum" itself.posted by: Dan Fan on 07.11.05 at 12:42 AM [permalink]
Yes, Malta was No. 12, with parliamentary ratification passing on July 6.posted by: Doug on 07.11.05 at 12:42 AM [permalink]
Has Andorra ratified? Liechtenstein? What way did Grand Fenwick wote on the Eu Constitution?posted by: Don on 07.11.05 at 12:42 AM [permalink]
