Will There Be a Second Referendum on Brexit? Here We Go Again

Will There Be a Second Referendum on Brexit? Here We Go Againby 👨‍💻 Simon Baxendale

Yes – another week goes by, and there’s more stories about the UK’s forthcoming exit from the European Union. The removal from the EU is fairly unique in that a divorce of this nature has never quite been attempted before. There are no precedents to work with, no templates to follow – which is why the process has been rather frantic, as far as the mass media has been advising us, in any case. Theresa May, UK Prime Minister, has been helming the process amid concerns over her ability as leader of the country, and amid fallout from her own party on the terms of removal which she has continued to put forward.

This week, rumblings from within the governing Conservative party have suggested that if May’s now media-infamous ‘Chequers Brexit’ plan doesn’t come to fruition, there may be need or call for a whole new referendum on the process. The original Brexit referendum, which took place in 2016, saw a swing towards ‘leave’ as opposed to ‘remain’ – and since then, ministers and officials have been working hard to come up with a plan which the government feels adequately represents the ‘will of the people’.

Treasury minister Mel Stride stated this week that, if May’s Chequers plan is ultimately rejected, there could be the need for the government to bow to pressure and to introduce a whole new referendum – or to stop the Brexit process altogether. “There is a danger of that happening if Chequers doesn’t prevail,” Mr Stride advised. However, May has continued to go on record to state that a second vote simply won’t be occurring. Her strapline ‘Brexit Means Brexit’ has run to the core of the process thus far, despite the Prime Minister having reportedly voted ‘remain’ during the referendum when she was working as a cabinet ally to David Cameron.

“This has changed everything,” advises Alison McGovern MP, speaking on behalf of the People’s Vote campaign. “A minister has had the courage to tell the truth about the mess the government are in over Brexit and let the cat out of the bag.” May’s Chequers plan is not only unpopular with many people within her own party, but also with the EU – as it was advised that the Prime Minister’s proposals need to be ‘reworked’ in order for a deal to be achieved. Deal or no deal? Let’s find out.
