The EU referendum was fundamentally flawed according to criteria set by ardent Brexiter and former Brexit Secretary, David Davis, on how referendums should be “done properly”.
In July 2016, the Tory MP and then Chief Brexit Negotiator in Theresa May‘s new government, Mr Davis lauded the result of the EU referendum as fair, legal, and democratic.
But back in November 2002, Mr Davis spelled out what he considered to be the gold standard for good referendums.
Mr Davis was opposing the then Labour government’s plans to hold referendums on regional assemblies, because he considered that the structure of the proposed referendums would be undemocratic.
He detailed how referendums should be run to be valid. But based on what he said then, the 2016 EU referendum was ENTIRELY invalid.
