How cool is this?

The disgraceful, sovereignty-robbing EU Constitution appears to be on ice - that is according to European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso. (hat-tip Slugger)

He said that the text was unlikely to be ratified in the near future, after French and Dutch voters rejected it and that the EU will not have a constitution for "at least two or three years".

The Commission spent Tuesday "brainstorming" at a chateau in southern Belgium about the future of Europe.

Mr Barroso insisted on Wednesday that the EU should not be nostalgic for the constitution, but should make the most of the existing treaty framework.

They better not get nostalgic for the constitution! Long-time visitors to this blog will be aware of how much I detest this rear end friendly constitution.

I greet Barroso's comments with cautious optimism however as I remain unconvinced that the EU seriously respect the sovereignty of nation-states.

As far as I'm concerned, this "brainstorming", especially from the Irish contingent, better involve a better deal for the Irish people than was offered to us in the current monstrosity.

Nothing less will suffice.
