Reader feedback: Know your constitution

Re: Knowledge of EU Constitution very low, Volume 11, Number 3, January 24-January 30, 2005

It is the duty of any citizen to get informed about important issues, like legislation. There are no excuses for not knowing the law. You can't tell a judge you don't know the law!

So go to the website [of the government office] and study the constitution. Alternatively, the government or the EU should make it available in print. I am sure that it is available in Slovakia. Otherwise I can mail you one - in Danish!

Jesper,
Denmark
