Referendum on the Brexit "deal", proposal in Parliament

Terms of Withdrawal from EU (Referendum) Bill
https://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/termsofwithdrawalfromeureferendum.html

Referendum on the Brexit "deal"

Hold a referendum on the Brexit "deal", the negotiated terms for leaving the EU. This is the aim of a bill put forward by MPs in Parliament. Plenty of time is left to think it over, to debate and lobby.

If you wish to reject or support this proposal then you should contact your MP and also if possible promote your point of view widely, https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mps/

In Parliament the Next Event will be the second "Reading" of the bill on 19 January 2018. The "terms" or "deal" for leaving the EU in the bill are called the "exit package".

On the proposed ballot paper will appear two choices, only one of these may be marked with a cross, they are:

Support the Government’s proposed exit package (ed. and leave the EU).

Remain a member of the European Union.

That would be an cynical & deeply manipulative choice, as it is
specifically designed to give those who want a hard Brexit, nothing to
vote for. :(

Any referendum woud have to be purely on the question of whether to
accept a particular deal, which would have already been made and agreed
by the government and the EU in principle.

Voting "Y" would mean acceptance of that deal and some new relationship
with the EU.

Voting "N" would mean a rejection of the deal and leaving the EU on WTO
terms.

There is no case for a referendum question couched in such a way as to
make "stay in on current terms" one of the two options.
