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

Switzerland acceded to Schengen in 2005 with a vote of 55% for to 45% against. Where's the second referendum to check if people are still happy with this result?
Surely you know that all EU countries hold referendums every five years to confirm that the people still want to be members. And for the countries that don't do this, Odile is at the front of the line demanding that democratic accountability.

And when a referendum doesn't return the result the EU wants, the EU would never ever demand a repeat of that refrendum.

This is why the EU is completely legitimated by democracy.
