EU's Grotesque Publicity Stunt Lifts Off Today

The EU Constitution lifts off into outer space today.

Many readers had assumed that, in our previous references to the madcap scheme, the blog was playing some kind of a weird joke on them. But it is not so.

Cosmonaut Roberto Vittori, aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket, will be clutching a copy of the constitution on lift-off from the Baikonur space base in Kazakhstan today. The take-off location may not be the most positive symbolic launch-pad, but EU leaders hope that the publicity generated will inspire citizens to ratify the very long and highly dangerous Constitution.

'Nuff said.
