Europe United

A simple survey of Europeans indicates that the French aren't all that well thought of. I would bet if the same survey mentioned in this article were conducted in the US you'd probably find that Americans like the French more the Europeans do.
"Interviewees were simply asked an open question - what five adjectives sum up the French," said Olivier Clodong, one of the study's two authors and a professor of social and political communication at the Ecole Superieur de Commerce, in Paris. "The answers were overwhelmingly negative."
Perhaps if the EU wants to see its constitution ratified across Europe, kicking the French out of the EU should be considered?
