Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Here's a clue, they don't.

Switzerland is the closest state in the world to a direct democracy. For any change in the constitution, a referendum is mandatory (mandatory referendum); for any change in a law, a referendum can be requested (optional referendum). Through referenda, citizens may challenge any law voted by federal parliament and through federal popular initiative introduce amendments to the federal constitution.

Don't. Bite. Rufus... don't. Bite.

Blueangel... I suppose the MPs in that situation will have to dance with the one that brung them... not good.
