Yes, but why were we the only ones to have a referendum?
Because they didn't think we would.

They did think that, but the answer is because our Constitution dictates that we do so.

So who decided that we would, the AG?

I presume that it would be the AG who advised that we would need one. The judges in the Crotty case were really the people who 'decided' that we would.

I would dearly love to see the AG's advice to the government. I have my own theories as to why Lisbon requires a referendum (as opposed to needing one, politically), but they are theories (admittedly, so would the AG's opinion be, but it would hopefully be a far better informed opinion!).
