Democratic legitimacy? It's not necessary.

A quote from this post, yesterday, one which Europhiles have as their core belief in the preservation of 'The Project", aka The European Union.

This is further demonstrated by a requirement of Sylvester Eijffinger, Tilburg University economics professor and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's advisor on the Icesave banking conflict, who has demanded that as Icelandic President Olafur Ragnar Grímsson has twice now referred deals made between Reykjavik and the Hague and London to referendums, Iceland should "change its President".

It may seem a far-fetched question but, how long before the EU interfere with the constitutional requirements of member states and ban the holding of referenda?
