This is the first comprehensive plan to give the British people a final say on the Brexit deal.
The Prime Minister needs to lay out her proposals for leaving.
The country needs to challenge Theresa May to come back in the autumn with a clear proposal that both parliament and the people can vote on. Internal cabinet and party divisions can no longer be allowed to hold the country hostage.
The deal must be clear about our relationship with Europe.
Comparing the government’s Brexit position on a range of issues to our current EU membership arrangements will enable the British public to understand the choice in front of them. This would be the first time a vote will have taken place with detail attached.
The deal must have the backing of the EU and the UK must still have a choice.
Any deal that comes to parliament must have the endorsement of the EU member states. Whatever deal is put to parliament, MPs must have the space to debate, challenge, and compare it to our current status as members of the EU.
In the autumn, parliament must vote on the deal and agree to a people’s vote.
Government and parliament should introduce a people’s vote to take place before the end of the negotiating period. Citizens should have the final say between the government’s deal and our current terms.
In 2019, a different kind of people’s vote campaign must be fought, without the mistakes of the past.
We cannot have a re-run of the 2016 vote. It must be a vote the like of which Britain has never seen before: with more stringent rules on digital campaigning, and citizens’ assemblies used to inform and encourage debate.
A people’s vote must be held before March 29 2019 to decide our country’s future.
Parliament’s vote on the deal in the autumn would be advisory. The people’s vote will decide if the terms negotiated with Brussels are better than the deal that we already have.
