Is the Future Bright?

I see the Netherlands is to hold its referendum on the EU constitution on June 1.It will be the first referendum held in the Netherlands.

The Netherlands is expected to be one of the few countries where the public vote may go against the constitution.

I truly hope that the Dutch,unlike the Spaniards,reject this terrible constitution.I am worried though about the stance of the Dutch government who have said they will abide by the outcome of the non-binding referendum if the results are clear.If the results are clear?What does that mean?Might the Dutch be faced with the same situation as the Irish and be ordered to vote again?
If there will be a United States of Europe,democracy certainly won't be its strong point...
