This is full of factual errors. Among others: the European Constitution 
(which contained essentially the same reformed) was voted in several 
countries and passed AT LEAST in 2, Spain and Luxembourg. The "democratic 
deficit" of the Union is a reality, but this treaty would have improved 
matters somewhat. As to the opposition to the treaty, it often was grounded 
on reactionary ideas such as national sovereignty, xenophobia, fear of 
change (like abortion or greater corporate taxes).
