I've been saying all the way through that it was a terrible idea to have a referendum asking people a question that they're not qualified to answer.

We might as well have a referendum on who should be Andy Murray's coach, or which astronomical body NASA should point the Hubble space telescope at.

This is why we have representative democracy. We pick who we want to represent us, and then they can - we hope - take the time look into all the details and work out the best answer.
