I Pit My Own Countrymen

… or at least those silly buggers planning to vote “No” in the upcoming poll on the new European treaty/Constitution.

If they had a good reason for voting no, I’d have understood. But none of them do. They complain and bitch about all sorts of things that have nothing to do with the treaty under referendum, and generally haven’t a clue what they are talking about.

The only positive thing about all this is that at least Europe is being discussed. But although I do hope so, I’m not fully convinced that this discussion leads to an increased knowledge, understanding and respect for the advantages of the treaty and of Europe, or that it will be the bullshit that will spread and infest the brains of people who didn’t have an opinion at all beforehand.

It’s embarrassing. Hopefully wisdom will prevail, but considering the silly voting habits that a large part of my countrymen have exhibited in recent years I must say I’m not very confident that things will turn for the better.
