The choice is obvious

Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende attempts to rally support for a "Ja":

"The question is: do we want to have progress today or do we choose a standstill, and for me the choice is obvious."

Should we move forward or would it be better to stand still? It very much depends where we're headed, I should have thought. If you were moving at speed in the direction of a brick wall, you might very well prefer the standstill option. That is why cars are fitted with brakes. It has been clear for many years that the people of Europe can have no influence on the direction of EU movement, but, mercifully, we can still hit the brakes.

I wonder which part of "NO" he didn't understand.
