Romano Prodi, kicking off his first official European tour with a stop in Austria, which holds the EU's rotating presidency, said the 25-nation bloc will not do anything major to resurrect the constitution until after France holds presidential elections next year.
Even then, "the constitution will not be the same" as the one rejected by French voters in May 2005, he said. "That is obvious."
What is also obvious is that given the cahnce we will reject that one as well. Which rather suggests that they will try to stop us geitting such a chance.
