Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One's instinctive reaction is "ah the Swiss are not as dumb as Brits"

but that's fundamentally wrong. Actually, the Swiss know how to do referenda (pose a precise question which can implemented in law). And they do it all the time.

It's almost like the Swiss assume a referendum will have consequences and thus it should be designed in a way those consequences are well defined and understood.
