Candidates for unusual punishment

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.

"Is it worth bothering"?

That depends on how much you care about looking like you've lost the argument.

You currently look like you're 2-0 down on the Fuckwit argument over at S&M.
