1) Simple, fair strategy for #PeoplesVote
The #Brexit side of the debate get to choose their option for the referendum question with one condition:
Their Brexit plan must be achieveable & must not depend on the EU "caving"

If they can't decide on an option, that's their problem
2) to explain, the Remain side choose "Remain" as their option for the ballot paper, and the Leave side get to pick any #Brexit variant they believe will get the most public support.

It could be a no deal #Brexit, a Canada deal with the backstop, May's deal or Norway+
3) but...
If for example they choose "no deal" its not "no deal because the EU will panic and give us a great deal", it's just "no deal", as it stands, with its consequences spelt out

If its May's deal, its May's deal *including* the backstop
4) so in other words it's any #Brexit option the leavers want to put forward, but it must be an option, fully detailed & achievable and which does not rely on the EU27 behaving in a certain way or granting certain concessions.

An option the UK can actually implement immediately
5) and then that option is debated against Remain, with its pro & cons. If it's a softer Brexit the argument has to be made about sovereignty, if a harder one, the arguments around cost & impact on the UK

But ultimately its a real thing we debate, not an abstract idea of "Leave"
6) but here's the really key point: if brexiters cannot come up with an option that can win, be sufficiently appealing to the public and *yet still be based on reality* then they've failed to deliver, and Brexit cannot be executed
7) Leavers won with the abstract concept of "Leave"
their ongoing cry is "Leave means leave" because, let's be honest, they know actual leave options are all a rubbish. The reality is they *know* that there is no real Brexit plan they can offer which would win a vote
8) but, to be fair, they should be given the opportunity - they should be asked "give us your best shot, of all the #Brexit variations give us the best, actually feasible option which you can win with"

And let's see what the public say
Who could complain about that?
