Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The government only gets to frame the question if parliament lets them. If they legislate for a referendum, then they can set both the question, and the legal effects.

(This isn't rocket surgery. NZ almost always does its referenda like this, so the public knows exactly what it is voting for. And its a source of significant disquiet around the upcoming marijuana referendum that they're not doing that, and instead doing it UK style with executive-set wording and no legal effects)
