Some Euro-realism

Now that Margo MacDonald has parted company with the SNP, she is free to speak her mind about the EU:
I'm appalled at the dictatorial, centralist, undemocratic and anti-internationalist tone of the draft European Constitution produced by former right-wing French president Valery Giscard d'Estaing. No more EU, say I.
Margo still seems to believe in much of the old-time leftist nonsense, but she asks some pertinent questions:
So does this draft EU constitution have anything to recommend it? Probably not, excepting its usefulness in spelling out what the EU should not be doing.
As she points out, the SNP is totally confused about the EU.
