So the Dutch said “NO” as well.
And no, saying that they only wanted to oppose their own government is too cheap an excuse. Lets face it: Europeans feel uncomfortable giving away control to Brussels. They haven’t seen any good stuff coming from there until now (ok, all the bananas are the same size now across the EU…).
