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

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.
How could you expect voters to understand what Brexit would actually be in the first place without explaining the implications it would have on business, trade and the Northern Ireland Border. All of those things should have been thought and planned out and explained as part of the Brexit vote in the first place.
