Someone explain the impossibility of renegotiation

No 'plan B' if French reject EU treaty
Today Mr d'Estaing described renegotiation as "impossible".

"There is absolutely no plan B," he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme:

The French statesman was speaking after a day of confusion at Westminster about the consequences for the Government's plans to hold a referendum here on the constitution in spring next year if France rejects the document in its poll on May 29.

Is it a French tradition to have "no plan B"?

Just wanted to drop in and say hello to you Chip and Jennifer. I am continuing to pray for both of you and hope God wraps His arms of peace around you. If I can ever, ever do anything for you, please email me and Zorkie has my address.

Beagle, i've been told by my euro friends that
1) If one signatory country declines, the whole shebang is null and void, and
2) the french people are against this, much to the chagrin of their leadership. ;)
