Title:
The Political Limitations of Evidence: A Critique of the Electoral Reform Society's It's Good To Talk
Authors:
Cunningham, Michael
Abstract:
The Electoral Reform Society has called for more and better quality information to improve democratic debate in relation to referendums. This article argues that, particularly in relation to the European Union referendum, this would have had a marginal impact, because much of the debate was not reducible to facts and emotional and dispositional factors were of particular significance in the campaign.
