Another Chance: How a second referendum could work

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/siteProfessional

Abstract

With the EU/UK Draft Withdrawal Agreement defeated in the House of Commons by a substantially wide margin yesterday and a no-confidence motion unlikely to lead to a general election, the United Kingdom finds itself at an impasse exactly 72 days prior to the 29 March withdrawal date. With No Deal a recipe for disaster and a Norway-style agreement anathema to most passionate Leave supporters, a second referendum is the only solution in town that can provide the legitimacy, fresh mandate and focus needed to make a final settlement acceptable to a broad majority of Britons and truly respect their democratic right to choose their country’s destiny.
