Don’t ask the People

Now the Belgians are running scared:
The Belgian liberal prime minister, Guy Verhofstadt, has lost the political backing needed to have a referendum on the European Constitution, according to Belgian media reports.
Why might that be?
The Flemish Spirit party defended its move by saying it was concerned that the referendum would be hijacked by the far-right Vlaams Belang party campaigning against Turkish membership of the EU.
So the people are stupid and cannot be trusted to make the right decision. Besides they didn't ban Vlaams Blok only to see it reappear again did they. I Love Democracy.
