That Swiss referendum
Not particularly relevant to the UK except that people claiming to be supporters of freedom are crowing about the victory and wishing that we had a similar system of referenda here.
It seems to me that any supporter of freedom ought to be concerned about the tyranny of the majority and the proper exercise of power.
And anyone interested in democracy ought to be concerned that a third of those eligible to vote is sufficient to make constitutional change – in relation to uh… planning law.
Quite, quite bizarre that these ostensible supporters of freedom think the result is wholly wonderful news.
