Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
Don't consider it at all a 'second' referendum - but very much a first informed one on the final deal available. Two very different things.

I don't think you can do a referendum on a deal, from a practical point of view.



First of all, this is an extremely complicated and long legal document. How can you expect all voters to understand this? Also, how many people have read the current proposal?



Second, what do you do if the deal will be rejected? Stay forever in the EU or try to renegotiate something? You don't know what should be changed exactly to get it accepted.
