This is quite glorious as an exemplar:
After the shocking lies told in both the alternative vote and the Brexit referendum campaigns, who wouldn’t be wary of ever holding another public vote? Kellner suggests that Labour, if in power, could bring in the reform for one election, promising a referendum to confirm it once people had tried it.
We’ve had a referendum on proportional representation and the people didn’t like it. Therefore the people should get it anyway because PR would be good for the left’s electoral chances.
Yes, OK, it’s not exactly making the trains run on time but it is more than just a little authoritarian, isn’t it?
