"Parliamentary representative democracy is not democratic." So you believe that having our sovereign Parliament voting on a topic is not Parliamentary representative democracy" Can you please explain?
I believe that Parliamentary democracy isn't democratic nor representative of what people want. Politicians by and large only vote or do whatever is best to further their own career. Unless of course you're Jeremy Corbyn. In short your average MP votes as follows:

1. The Party
2. Self interest
3. Lobby interests

The people count for nothing. Which is why I don't vote (this referendum being the exception). And why I say a little prayer every night before tucking my Swiss residence permit under my pillow.
