Binding referenda is just total bullshit.
Our democracy is sufficiently threatened by allowing the idle, the ignorant and the illinformed to vote for MPs without allowing those same demented souls to actually vote in a binding referendum.
Lets say for instance we have a vote on capping the national debt, a very laudable tenet to provide a handbrake on the well established economic idiocy that pervades most politicians currently.
How could the demented old soul dribbling in a chair in the rest home have any possible knowledge base for such a convoluted decision yet Mr Craig and his just out of the closet supporter with 500 stacks want such a decision to rest on that vote.
