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