Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the USA the referendum was a product of the Progressive Movement around the turn of the 19/20th Century. As Prop. 13 in California has shown they can also be used for great mischief by conservatives. I don't know how that would translate to Ireland.
