Could we have a second EU referendum? What would be on the ballot? And how long would it take?by Alan Renwick / February 9, 2018 / Leave a comment
There is increasing talk of another referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union. Once a Brexit deal has been agreed in the autumn, advocates say, voters should get to decide whether to accept it. Voters started the Brexit process, the argument goes, so they should determine how it ends too.
Whether we like this idea or not, it is worth thinking through what would be involved. What would the referendum actually be about? How long would it take? Is it feasible given the constraints of Article 50?
