That's certainly a question to be asked of the political classes who dreamed up the referendum and the question in the first place. However, a significant number of the voting population supported the contention that walking away from complicated legal frameworks was perfectly possible and indeed would be good for us.

Every industry and business in this country is compelled to produce risk management procedures yet we let people with no ability or experience and sometimes doubtful intelligence to run our country. Time to change the selection procedures for people seeking election to office.
