Hopes Dashed

A headline like that, you would expect it to be about the failure to find more survivors after the roof collapse in Poland. Perhaps it could be about the particularly Not Gay Simon Hughes and his failing campaign or even a lost dog on Salisbury Plain. But No. This is more serious than all of those:

Finland has delayed formal ratification of the European Union constitution, dashing hopes that the nation might breathe new life into the half-dead treaty.
One by one, members are refusing to play the game. Having heard an MEP state that the voters of France and The Netherlands should have no more say than those who want the treaty, I understand where this non story came from. They keep hoping that momentum can put pressure on the rejecters.
