That's why this referendum has been a good thing from the point of view of people getting off their rears and involved in what's at stake. I have lost count of the amount of people I canvassed in elections who either couldn't be arsed or just didn't understand the process, that has to be addressed. It has to be part of the national curriculum, the electorate do have the power to change things but to do that you have to be engaged and informed. We might then effect real change and put politicians national and local, on their guard, basically don't sit indoors whingeing, do something. Go to council meetings, they are open to the public, speak to local councillors, join the local residents/tenants association, get bolshie if you want things doing in your area, but understand the process and what is possible or not, and why that maybe the case. You might not be popular with the powers that be but until and unless you make your voice heard you won't get change.
