What a bizarre situation we find ourselves. We are in a situation where our politicians are denying us, the people that they are meant to represent, a say on whether we should stay in the EU or not. Why? Because they know we will get it wrong. They know that we would vote to leave the EU in a click of the fingers. Even the Conservatives know, deep down, that staying in the EU and pushing for reform is the only sensible way forward. So we face a battle, democracy Vs what is good for the country – what’s a politician to do?
