Good Sense From Barroso

As reported in The Times today...

The Commission is concerned that if federalist leaders push ahead with the treaty, it will put them on a collision course with the eight countries that have promised their people referendums on the treaty, including Britain and Poland.
Speaking in Vienna, Senhor Barroso pleaded: “Please avoid a new division in Europe about institutions. The most important concern now of EU citizens is not institutional problems, but growth and jobs.”

Indeed. He seems to be living in the same universe as the rest of us. Unlike, sadly, the Austrian Chancellor, who said

“The constitution is not dead, the constitution is in the middle of the ratification process.”
