Re: What I don't understand

It’s not the standard for ‘anything’ or even for ‘changing the status quo’

It’s a relatively arbitrary (but common) line for ‘irreversible action’

We can create and remove a Welsh Senned. We can appoint and remove MPs, change taxes, change the amount we spend on the military, the welfare state.

We can’t do that here, if we leave we cannot go back (in anything even vaguely like our current state).

For that reason (the irreversibility of the action) I support a supermajority requirement.

At least we need to check again now that people have an actual three options to choose between rather than a plethora of incompatible promises which.
