Referendum2 on terms negotiated for "brexit". Your opinion?

23 June 2017

In opinion surveys of both the UK (2) and Scotland (3) a second EU "brexit" referendum (about whether or not to accept the negotiated terms) has received majority support: see reports referenced below.

A referendum on such a grave subject should be carefully considered and designed standards for the first "brexit" referendum were in our view unfit for purpose.

We want to know your opinion about the content and conditions for a possible, second (21st century) UK referendum about the EU.

INIREF QUERIES THE DESIGN OF A POSSIBLE SECOND UK/EU "brexit" REFERENDUM

Referendum2 design

The first "brexit" referendum was badly designed (1).

How do you think that a second referendum about UK and EU should be organised and designed?

Who should "trigger" the referendum? Parliament? Government? A large number of citizens?

Which proposals or questions should be on the ballot paper?

Should there be a "hurdle" of minimum turnout below which the poll would be invalid?

Who should be able to vote franchise? Voting age? Ex-pats ?
