Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Well William Pfaff wrote an article entitled A Sixth Republic for France? Perhaps Sarko's grotesque mimicry of Bonapartisme would make suggestions of a Sixth Republic more palatable. The current situation does highlight the limitations of lots of constitutions, including that of the USA.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
