Is this what Maryam Moncef tried to say about the electoral reform referendum?

Richard Dawkins on the Brexit referendum:
He said: “It is an outrage that people as ignorant as me are being asked to vote. This is a complicated matter of economics, politics, history, and we live in a representative democracy not a plebiscite democracy. You could make a case for having plebiscites on certain issues – I could imagine somebody arguing for one on fox hunting, for example – but not on something as involved as the European Union. This should be a matter for parliament.”
'Course, then we would need a working parliament.  But:  give em some responsibility, they might rise to it.
