  1. This is political sleight of hand. Nothing in that question mentions anything about The Privy Council or CCJ so how are people supposed to know what they are voting for or against? Seems a bit unethical to me. Remember the proponents of this bill is telling us that the people are too dumb to consider more than one issue at a time, so why not make it simple so that we the dumb people can understand. Like maybe:- Do you wish to amend the constitution to make the CCJ our final court of appeal?

    • They can’t fool me. I will gladly select the option with NO!! But I do echo your sentiments. Someone is trying ti be tricksy
