Say it in Danish

Did you know that Denmark likes referenda a lot and already had 6 referenda on European Union matters, starting in 1972 (63,3% YES to Denmark becoming a member of the EU)?
The last one took place on September 28, 2000 (53,2% NO to Denmark adopting the Euro). Altogether, Denmark had 13 referenda since 1953 (versus 8 for France since 1958). The next one, on the European constitution, is to take place on September 25, 2005. Current polls show that a majority of Danes would vote YES, but many people are still undecided.
