Stop the EU, France wants to get off

Stop the EU, we want to get off

The kitsch doll-like child with stars in her eyes, symbol of the conservative UMP's 'Yes' campaign, will be weeping tonight. Exit polls put the 'No' vote at 55%. France has rejected the European constitution which it sees as being too complex to understand and too liberal from the point of view of economic development.
President Jacques Chirac has put himself in the firing line in defending the 'Yes' vote, from televised TV debates with the youth of France to personal addresses to the Nation. Now Jean-Marie Le Pen is demanding that he resign in light of this result. Will the promised chaos that the conservatives predicted ensue?
