Worth a read from @peoplesvote_uk on options: d3n8a8pro7vhmx.cloudfront.net/in/pages/19743…

fine to point out problems of alternatives, but another referendum would also have many issues

@peoplesvote_uk Firstly, there's no clear incentive to pass the legislation through for a vote.

Other options are problematic, but unevenly so, thus different sections of Commons might feel they don't want to go down this path

@peoplesvote_uk Secondly, there's no guarantee a second referendum would be run w/o the problems that compromising integrity of #EUref for many.

Process matters as much as outcome

@peoplesvote_uk Thirdly, the choice of Q in a vote will be a highly political choice in itself: what to include/exclude and how to (fairly) produce a majority outcome if there are more than two options on the ballot?

@peoplesvote_uk And finally, turnout will matter. How fair will it be if a new vote overturns #EUref, but on a lower turnout?

@peoplesvote_uk tl;dr all paths are very problematic from here
