Imagine a groundswell of popular opinion saying, “hold on, ask me that question again”.
And then ask, if there is to be a second Brexit referendum, does it simply have to mirror the first? Perhaps the strongest lesson in politics today is that plurality is here to stay. So we could have a range of options on offer, such as:
A – Hard Brexit
B – Soft Brexit without freedom of movement
C – Soft Brexit with freedom of movement
D – Stay in EU
Voting could be by single transferable vote, 1st choice, 2nd choice, etc. Transfers are possible UK-wide, not limited to smaller constituencies. Harder work for the tellers, but these days human-supervised count scanners are possible.
