Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
things on the people when a referendum is policy or has been promised. Politicians should do their best to explain something and then let the people decide. If they cannot explain it well enough or it is not in the interest of the people then it will be rejected. Rather than try to secretly push this rejected document through, it is time to rework it and then se if it is more popular. The now very large EU remains an organization where the lowest common denominator remains the only option that can be accepted. If politicians do not like this state of affairs then it is time they started fighting to convince their electorates of what they want.
