"There is a cleavage"
"France was just ahead of all the other countries in voting no," said Monsieur Sarkozy. "It would happen in all member states if they have a referendum."
Expanding on his theme, and explaining why the masters of Europe will not allow the people to vote on the EU, he added dramatically, "There is a cleavage between people and governments."
Yes, there is. It is deep cleavage, too.
