The question that the Irish should have been asked

While referendums are a hugely anti-democratic feature of public life, wherever they occur under whatever circumstances, you'd think that those who advocate them would at least have the brains to ask the question properly. For intance, why weren't the Irish asked ... "Lisbon .... or Nice?"

The answer is, of course, that referendums can only ever be used to ask stupid questions.
