I am tidying the flat, and some of the papers that needed to be tossed led me to update my wiki article “Dictatorship and Plebiscites” where I have added two references to the list at the bottom. One is from the FT, quoting Thatcher’s opposition to them in the ’70s and one from the Labour Party Marxists, which is good on reviewing the thoughts of the great and not so great teachers.

I also added the comment that, her line, and Atlee’s are problematic if we are beginning to question Parliamentary Sovereignty as inadequate to defend the rule of law. Courts have taken to defending the citizen against Government’s which in the UK means against Parliament because the Government controls Parliament, not the other way round. It shouldn’t be sovereign any more.
