Apologies again for the sparse posting. Regular visitors will be surprised at the lack - to date - of one of my template "why a referendum on the European treaty is a stupid idea, and why exponents of such should suffer death by scaphism" posts.
I'll confine myself to this observation:
The argument for a referendum on this issue is based largely on the argument that such a treaty will diminish our democracy.
Is it worth bothering to argue with anybody who regards a referendum as a legitimate and democratic way of deciding policies?
You decide. I'm off to the pub.
