Belgian MEP calls opponents of Lisbon Treaty Stupid

if nothing else could show how opposed to democracy fanatical EU enthusiasts are, there opposition to the No side on the Lisbon treaty and indeed a referendum shows it. It is a perfectly reasonable opinion to be opposed to a lisbon which many feel including myself will take power away from people and give it to EU wide bodies, leading to a European superstate which many don't want - i would prefer an intergovernmental EU where nations work together - and therefore states keep it's powers and choose where to work and co-operate. with this in mind i feel there should be no more EU integration - because i believe that would be damaging to member states interests and give more power to unaccountable EU wide bodies -which would damage democracy.

Yet Apparently me and many others who take this perfectly reasonable views are apparently stupid and stupid for wanting a referendum. This is taken by a cheerleading supporter of further EU integration Annemie Neyts-Uyttebroeck. So apparently we're stupid for supporting democracy and having minds and opinions of our own - and my own riposte and you wonder why people are Eurosceptic and sceptical of the lisbon treaty?- the sheer disregard shown to anyone who has a different opinion is breathtaking.
