Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The quickest way to undermine parliamentary democracy is to wrestle away from its remit the most crucial issue in front of it since WW2 and put it into the hands of over forty million unelected individuals whose credentials are entirely unchecked and which in most cases wouldn't bear close examination

So the hoi polloi are insufficiently knowledgeable to decide on a vote on whether to remain in the EU, but the MPs (who were elected by that same electorate) are!

What an interesting viewpoint.
