It was Nee! Were we surprised?

Well the Dutch did vote Nee, and the European Union bigwigs come onto the TV screens to express their appreciation of democracy but, with a menacingly undemocratic undertone, imply that the dullards of negativity, as they see the victors of the Nee vote, are in need of some kind of re-education. Surely, it is the likes of Jose Manuel Barroso, the President of the Commission, and Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker of Luxembourg, the current president of the European Union, who need a period of re-education - in democracy!

Jean-Claude Juncker declares that "this is a dangerous position to be in" but seems to have no response to the voters' concerns! It appears that only a dirigist approach is how these "leaders" can operate. Do as we say or else! The people of Europe are expecting much more now and this result implies so far, but no further (political integration). We want to be heard!
