Brexit is a mess, say some.

The government is falling apart, argue others.

Former education secretary, Justine Greening, has called for a fresh referendum on the UK’s exit from the EU.

She argued that another vote would be “the only way to end deadlock”.

Greening, who supported Remain in the EU referendum, said the second referendum should offer a first and second preference vote so that a consensus can be reached.

However, Downing Street has rejected her proposal and said a referendum will not happen “in any circumstances”.

A referendum requires an Act of Parliament, which needs to be voted through by the majority of MPs. And currently, there are not enough MPs who support the idea of a second referendum.

Labour does not currently back a referendum on the deal, but Jeremy Corbyn has not ruled it out. The SNP, Lib Dems and a handful of Tory backbenchers are campaigning for another vote.

If a second referendum were to take place, Greening stated that there should be three options on the ballot paper: the prime minister’s Chequers deal, staying in the EU or a clean break from Europe with no deal.

So, what would you vote for? Have your say here.
