This is an interesting point, you have to admit (from the letters page of the Prague Post):

The Prague Post: "Under Article I-10.2 (a), citizens from large nations would have 'the right to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States' and under Article I-10.2 (b), these citizens, when living in the host Member States, are also given 'the right to vote and to stand as candidates in elections to the European Parliament and in municipal elections in their Member State of residence, under the same conditions as nationals of that State.'

I'm mentioning this to you because we are not seeing this potential threat being analyzed, not even in the 'Vote No' campaigns. Of course, if the proposed constitution is ratified, the Czech Republic's estimated population of 10.3 million would be at a considerable disadvantage if some large faction of Germany's estimated 82 million decided to work a 'hostile takeover' of border areas, or more."

Surely some mistake?
