What on earth is Larry Baldock thinking?Larry Baldock wants another referendum. So he is going to launch a new petition. The question on the petition will aim to change the Citizens Initiated Referenda Act 1993.
The wording of the question would focus on the issue of whether citizens initiated referenda seeking the repeal or amendment of any law passed by parliament should be binding. It's likely to just piss people off. Even if the petition gets enough signatures there's one small problem.
The referendum calling for some referenda to be binding will itself not be binding.The Government can -and should - ignore it too. If Baldock wants to waste his time chasing his tail, good luck to him. The implications of legislation of this nature do not bear thinking about.
