Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The BBC is reporting that May is only going to ask for a short delay, which is what the Brexiteers in the cabinet wanted. With the exception of a general election, I think this rules out any form of public involvement - there is simply not time to agree the referendum question and hold a vote in three months. Equally the Kyle amendment where May's deal is put to a public confirmation hits a severe time barrier, which gets worse with every day's delay. It seems to me that the final decision (or final indecision) will now be taken in Parliament without involving the public.
