Yes, no, maybe

• Having listened to the disingenuous (possibly also illegal) arguments of our ruling Coalition and some other politicians for a Yes vote in the recent referendum, and the ravings of Mitt Romney for three months (now all over the internet), I would like to paraphrase Churchill.

The biggest argument against democracy is to listen carefully to the election promises and statements of the average politician for five minutes.
