French EU plans

Ségolène Royal, the Socialist candidate for the French presidency has said that the UK needs to choose between Europe and America. The Daily Telegraph says she had plans for new EU constitution, to be embedded in a new treaty.

Britain would be asked to sign up to the new treaty, but if it rejected calls for increased protectionism, an EU foreign minister, convergence on tax rates and moves to create a European army, then France and her allies would agree a treaty among themselves..
The EU constitution is dead in the water since the French and the Dutch peoples rejected it but that will not stop the Euromaniacs trying again and again until they get their way.

Europe or America? As they say in polite society, F the French.
