Brexit Watch: How to Make the Best Use of a Referendum?

Dan speaks to the head of a new Independent Commission on Referendums, where the aim is to make sure they are used wisely and conducted fairly.

The vote for Brexit was the result of a referendum, the third in the UK in recent years. Referendums seem to be getting more and more common; but are they being used wisely and conducted fairly? Dan speaks with the director of the new Independent Commission on Referendums, Alan Renwick from the Constitutional Unit of University College London. There are also updates on this week's Brexit developments, including the UK government publishing position papers on trade and on the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish republic.
