One thing is a Treaty and another a Constitution. But the Lisbon Treaty is
the failed European Constitution with makeup changes, so how's that our

another one without the due democratic process? Why is it that they wanted
to subject the failed European Constitution to national referendums and not
the Lisbon Treaty when they are practically the same thing?
