Should voters in the UK have a final vote on the Brexit deal?
Business hates uncertainty. A referendum continues that uncertainty.
Businesses hate lost profits more than uncertainty. Businesses that stand to lose from Brexit would welcome a new vote.
With the right question a new people's vote would lead clearly either to the deal as negotiated being implemented, or a decision to remain in the EU. Neither of these is an outcome that leads to more uncertainty.
It costs businesses less to wait out before committing to any action than to move capital and labor abroad.
The fluid and chaotic approach of the government to the negotiations means that there is continuing uncertainty up to the point that a new referendum would take place in any case.
