It’s not fair, because we weren’t there.

It was the usual anti-eu blabber on the radio this morning by the chair of the 1922 committee, then came a pearl of an argument for holding a referendum,

“it is right to hold a referendum on EU membership because millions of people weren’t able to vote in the last referendum on Europe”

This argument strikes me as weak. To this logic, we could argue that there should be a referendum on the monarchy, the role of Prime Minister or even Wales’ membership to the UK, after all, no one alive today were able to vote for these!
