No. And now?

<http://www.cafebabel.com/en/dossier.asp?id=175>No. And now?
SPECIAL EDITION - With 54.87% voting <i>Non</i>, the French have rejected
the European constitution. Already ratified by 10 countries, can the
constitution still become law and, if not, how can the evolution of the EU

<http://www.cafebabel.com/en/article.asp?T=T&Id=3900>There is no equivalent

it actually came to the referendum. A look at how the Yes vote collapsed
over the past year.

<http://www.cafebabel.com/en/article.asp?T=A&Id=1261>Prior to the French
referendum, pressure was put on the public to vote Yes, with politicians
pointing out that "there is no plan B". So what is going to happen now that
France has voted No?
