EU constitution referendum question announced

The Electoral Commission have decided the wording of the question which will be submitted to the UK electorate in the referendum about ratification of the EU Constitutional Treaty by this country:
"Should the United Kingdom approve the treaty for establishing a constitution for the European Union?"

I am glad that the wording is relatively simple, but I am not sure how I shall vote. As readers of this blog may know, I support in general terms the principle of having such a treaty, but I have enormous reservations about the length and complexity of the final text.
