Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - I cannot support this report. The text fails to recognise that the Constitutional Treaty has been rejected by electors in two Member States. Undoubtedly if given the opportunity of a referendum, other rejections would also be delivered. The two rapporteurs want to somehow revive the core of the current, rejected, text. This does not seem to me to be credible. How can French and Dutch voters be expected to accept such arrogance? We are in a so-called period of reflection, let us make it a period in which to rethink, replace, and not just regurgitate a document which has already been resoundingly rejected.
