Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
referendums are pest and should be forbidden. But since they aren't, one have to deal with them. It would be incredibly difficult to pass a new constitution in France (specially after the late "no") without a new one.

The only way of doing it is to have the right timing : pass the referendum when the government is popular. It seldom happens but there are windows of opportunity sometimes.
