No-vote gains in Luxembourg

If a French rejection of Europe's constitutional treaty seemed unlikely earlier this year, a No vote by passionately pro-Europe Luxembourg would have been inconceivable.

But after the political shockwaves created by the overwhelming French No vote and the expectation that the Dutch will reject the constitution today, even Luxembourg's endorsement is no longer certain. The Yes camp's share narrowed from 59 per cent last month to 46 per cent in May, while support for the No vote grew from 23 per cent to 32 per cent, according to the Ilres polling group.
