Wow, the Dutch voters appear to have rejected the EU constitution with an even larger majority than expected. This is even more painful for the government because the turnout was relatively high, more than 60%, whereas for the last elections for the European Parliament only 39% of the voters bothered to show up ( or to send the necessary forms, like I did ).
As much as I do not agree with him, I think Geert Wilders is right about at least part of the message conveyed by the voters: he will submit a motion of no-confidence in parliament tomorrow.
