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

Now that the harm is done, the best thing they could do was put to the voters the question again: do you want the UK to leave the EU (yes/no); if yes, what type of exit relationship would you seek (May's deal/no deal); what type of relationship should the UK secure? (single market/free-trade area/none)
A complete waste of time because there is no way to enforce it and the government no longer has a majority in parliament.

A this stage probably the only thing that can legally be done is a complete reset. As stated by the ECJ, parliament could revoke A50 and then hold a GE. Most likely it would result in another hung parliament and years of squabbling, but at least it would have a low impact on the economy.
