Eurosceptic Precedent.

I have previously argued that the No votes in Holland and France had set a precedent for a number of reasons:
  1. Once the fear of voting No is overcome, the chances of electors vote against rises.
  2. The feeling that we are being lied to is reinforced by people elsewhere rejecting something that we are told is so wonderful.
  3. The topic is much more open for discussion. This removes some of the advantage that the state has.
  4. The media loves negative stories and starts giving much more space to the anti argument.
Now the latest in a line of big swings in the polls has happened in Poland:
Only 40 pct of Poles surveyed backed the EU constitution compared with 54 pct before last week's strong rejections of the treaty by French and Dutch voters.
The future for Euroscepticism looks bright.
