Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Parliament is probably the most representative body available, so it's a good place to have the debate, if it is taken back to the voters at home.

I agree with the idea of a debate lead by the European Parliament, but I think many European citizens wouldn't accept not to be consulted. In my view, the best method was the one proposed by the Greens: to organise a Europe-wide referendum on the same day. That would lead partisans of the "yes" as well as those in favour of the "no" to campaign at European level.
