The Dutch Vote No

THE DUTCH VOTE NO….The polls have closed in the Netherlands, and exit polls say that the Dutch have voted overwhelmingly against the new EU constitution. I’d say that’s the final nail in the coffin.

But please: I’ve already had enough of headlines about the French “Non,” so can we please avoid a second round about the Dutch “Nee”? Pretty please?

And no Monty Python jokes either. I’m not kidding about this, folks. No Monty Python jokes.
