> a democratic country had a democratic election

I think it would be better expressed as "a democratic country had a demagogic election", since campaigners on both sides were spouting nonsense to appeal to lowest-common-denominator voters.

It's been said before that "Democracy degenerates into demagogery" and this referendum farrago has been an excellent demonstration of that.
