They want to improve how we handle referenda. We don't. The UK is a parliamentary democracy. Opinion polls don't count.
The EU referendum campaign was dogged by "glaring democratic deficiencies" with voters turned off by big name politicians and negative campaigning, the Electoral Reform Society says.
Brexit was an opinion poll that said "tick leave if you want things to change". If all the Brexiters had to agree on a realistic strategy for how the policy would be implemented you'd struggle to get 10% of the turnout in one line.
