That would be the point, I fear. If Leave is overturned, then Mandelson is right. If it stands then you are right. I see the mass disenfranchisement of the population more of a problem than any speed bumps from leaving the EU.I think we are in the process of overturning the 'dictatorship of experts'. As things currently stand an individual's vote is worth diddly squat.
