How to ban referendums: the Referendum Banning Act 2016

Here is my modest proposal for a short Act of Parliament for banning referendums.  You will see how it would make such a ban irreversible.

Referendum Banning Act 2016

1. The holding of a referendum is hereby prohibited.

2. This Act can only be repealed by a referendum.

That should do the trick, shouldn’t it?
