    June 3 (Bloomberg) — Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, the current holder [now, that is Blair] of the European Union’s rotating presidency, said he’ll resign if voters in his country follow the French and Dutch in rejecting the European Union constitution in a referendum next month.

    If Luxembourg voters will vote No, that will not just be important for Luxembourg national politics.

    It will also in effect kill the proposals for this anti-democratic, “neo-liberal” (or: neo-conservative), and militarist constitution.

    On the evening (Central European time) of Sunday 10 July, here on this blog, there will be live blogging on the Luxembourg referendum results.

    If there is downtime or another problem at ModBlog, then the live blogging will be at my backup blog: here.

    Luxembourg No campaigners are here (“Leftist”); and here (“Left Liberal”).

    UPDATE: read the above on Luxembourg, with links, here.
