    Just five days remain until the French referendum on the European Constitutional Treaty. The polls indicate that the “non” vote leads with 53 percent. The poor economic performance of France seems to be the main engine for those opposed to the EU Treaty.

    I think it may have more to do with the French not liking 'all the little nothings' now associated with the EU. France wanted all sorts of exceptions for itself and Germany, but they are not happening.
