referendum: An act of eternal stupidity

Can't agree there, why blame the referendum? Had it been properly constituted with more than a simple majority and with a compulsory vote then the result would truly reflect the desires of the people. In most countries referendums are used when there is a desire to change the constitution, an artifact that is absent in Britain. This means careful thought has been given to how a referendum should work. Moreover as is evident now many who voted did not even know what the possible outcomes were which means that the question was poorly framed: The Brexit referendum question was flawed in its design | LSE BREXIT[^]
