Brits, do you think there will be a 2nd Brexit referendum and how could\would it happen?

Update:

The Conservatives are deeply Leave, so they will either go with no deal or a hard one (Theresa May has shown soft Brexit can be as difficult as hard Brexit). There will not be a new election as the Tories know they would not win one. The EU could push the date back but not for until the next election in 2021, because everyone in the Tory race is Leave.

    If parliament really thought that leaving the EU was such a great idea,then we would have left by now but, no.

    They are quite aware that the 34% leave brigade have shot themselves in the foot. And they are now trying to find away of getting around, not leaving the EU.

    So for the sake of not losing face the charade must go on but, we will get a new referendum.

    That's if we want to call ourself a democracy in the future because the right to change one's mind is one the the pillows of a democracy along with few other things such as: proportional-representation, a written constitutions, a non political police force but, maybe these democratic intuitions will be part and parcel of the UK's so-called democracy in the future.We can always live in hope.

      same job.If changing one's mind is one the the pillows of a democracy, then why do we vote ever 4-5 years? That's when some people change their mind an vote for different a party, one that they didn't vote for in the previous election.

    The brainless stupidity of leaving the strongest trading block in the world where they were a major player to take their chances competing in a world where they are now a mere shadow of their former industrial strength has got to be one of the dumbest decisions any country has made in the last 100 years!!!

    Even worse they are about to have the guy that lied his bastard *** off to them become PM!!!

    Boris Johnson should be hung in the street alongside Nigel Farage!

    In the face of all the falsehoods and lies that was sold to the British people there can be no other choice but another referendum, and Johnson and Farage MUST be made accountable!!!

    There is no solution on which Parliament can agree. A second referendum putting a clear plan to leave EU against remaining in EU, which is binding on Parliament, is the only answer,

    No you can't keeping having votes until you get the result you want. We voted leave and it should be honoured. It's called democracy.

      The leave campaign was based on outright lies and falsehoods and that is why there should be another vote!

      Boris Johnson should be hung in the streets never mind running for PM!

    I wouldn't rule it out but there will be serious repercussions for all those who overruled democracy.

      Having a new referendum, is that not democratic, changing one's mind, is that not democratic? Isn't the corner-stone of democracy the right to have a stand-point until one changes one's stand-point?

    A 2nd, a 3rd, as many as it takes to reflect the democratic will of the British people. That's how the EU works, anyone who criticises it is a threat to democracy.

      "British people"only 34% voted for out,so how can that be the will of the people?
      If there had been a 100% turnout and 52% vote leave,which they didn't.That still would be the will of the people.It would only be the will of 52% of the people. So how do you convince the other 48% that you are right?

    No, parliament has already decided that there will be NO 2nd referendum.

  • 6 months ago

    Time has run out for the legal and other processes required for a referendum to be completed by the end of October. It would require the support of a majority of MPs and the EU leaders agreeing to another extension but that is possible if there is still an impasse when MPs return from the summer recess. Anything is possible of course.

    No I don't think so. There will be a choice between crashing out with no deal or revoking Article 50.

    None of the candidates for the PM job has said anything sensible about their plans for Brexit.

    If Boorish Johnson (known as the Donald Trump of GB) becomes the next PM, a second referendum is unlikely because Boorish is a strong supporter of Brexit.

      "Good for Boris!" but, bad for the UK. He could always sell Wales to Trump- Make about 7 good gulf-courses.
