Referendums aren't some special treats for being a good little doggie dog, it's skirting democracy. As Margaret Thatcher and Clement Atlee said it's the tool of despots and demagogues. There's nothing less democratic.
Have you got a source for that quote?
And I'd disagree actually taking a vote on an issue could really be more democratic.
Its not in Britain as you claim, are you thinking about David Irving trial? because that was a civil case he took against a publisher and another author who had written a book very critical of his work. He lost by the way.It's illegal in all of Europe.
