Should voters in the UK have a final vote on the Brexit deal?
The complexities and consequences of not being in the EU are becoming more known now by every day people, the British public are now far more informed now about how complex the issue actually so know more about what a future deal may look like.
The implications for the north/south Irish border and Northern Ireland peace process weren't even considered during the 1st referendum.
The public can only truly be informed, once terms of an arrangement are stipulated. Once informed they can consent giving democratic legitimacy to the arrangement.
The electorate may now be more informed yet still not be informed enough; at the time of the first referendum it may have been less informed but still sufficiently informed. There is no competency test for voters.
The complexities of not being in the EU were always a known unknown. The UK voted leave knowing that to begin 'afresh' outside the EU carried significant uncertainties.
