The EU observer is carrying details of a poll conducted in Denmark by Greens Analyseinstitut, and published in the Danish business daily B?rsen today (3 June), 39.5 per cent of Danes would reject the Constitution, 30.8 per cent would now approve the Constitution, while 29.7 per cent were undecided.
Calculating roughly, this means of those who have decided, 56% are against and 44% are in favour. Interestingly 63% want the right to vote. Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen – the EU Observer says – is reluctant to officially cancel the planned referendum scheduled for 27 September. This is an elemnt I hadn’t bargained on – the people demanding the right to express themselves. This could become a bandwagon which it gets difficult to stop. I guess it is what Barroso meant by ‘contagion’.
