The referendum battle on whether Britain should sign up to the new European Union constitution is wide open, a surprising new poll suggests.
Some 39% of those surveyed for the Sunday Telegraph indicated they would vote Yes in the referendum, just two points behind the 41% who said they would vote No.

I would hope the UK would vote no, unless the 'issues' were addressed. A Franco-German powerase in not in the UK's interest imho.......
But I am across the pond so I don't really know the details....

There is no Franco-German power base, the main player in the EU is......the EU
However I can see the people of Britain rejected the vote on the constituation most people will vote against the Constitution simply because it is the EU Constitution, others will vote against because they don't like the direction that the EU is taking.
Pre-referedum polls mean nothing the only poll that counts is the referendum itself

Roll on the referendum.
Spain has already said 'yes', France has announced a referendum on this 'constitution' (when the 'no' campaign has been claiming for months that they wouldn't dare).
With a decent campaign I think it is perfectly winnable for the 'yes' group(s).

So what is next for the EU.
I think it will eventually happen and that this is a setback, but not the end.
