It seems rather pointless to waste 2 years negotiating an exit deal because
of a narrow referendum victory, only to have it rejected by a 2nd referendum
which means we stay in the EU after all.

This amendment is not going to happen. It is just another straw-clutching
exercise by the remoaners (probably led by that Blair bloke).

Brexit means Brexit - so get used to it.

This is clearly a non-starter, as it excludes Leaving without a deal,
the preferred option for a significant proportion of Brexit supporters.

An amendment proposed for a bill in Parliament can put forward an idea for debate in public and parliament. A law which might emerge could diverge from the amendment, e.g. here the option of "hard brexit" could be included. The E-petition for a referendum on "the deal" which will be debated in Parliament on 11th December includes a choice of leaving the EU with no deal. https://calendar.parliament.uk/calendar/Commons/All/2017/12/11/Daily

Only British citizens and UK residents can create or sign a petition.
Hold a referendum on the final Brexit deal

We, the undersigned, call upon HM Government to give the people of this country the final say on the Brexit deal negotiated by the UK and EU. This would be done through a referendum that would take place prior to the April 2019 exit date.

The referendum would allow for three options:

(1) To revoke Article 50, thereby keeping Britain in the EU

(2) To reject the UK-EU deal and leave the EU

(3) To accept the UK-EU deal and leave the EU

If no agreement has been negotiated by the UK and EU before the date of the referendum, then the third option could be removed. If all three options remain, it may be necessary for the vote to take place using a Single Transferable Vote to ensure no option is disadvantaged.

Regardless of whether individuals voted to remain or leave the EU in the June 2016 EU referendum, everyone should have a chance to decide their future based on the final agreement negotiated between the UK and EU.
