First things first. This would not be the second referendum asking if we should stay in the EU but the third.

The first was on 5 June 1975 in the United Kingdom to gauge support for the country's continued membership of the European Communities (EC)

The second was on Thursday 23 June 2016. The United Kingdom voted for the second time in 41 years on its membership to what is now known as the European Union (EU)

It would actually be the first referendum. Both the others asked more or less the same question. This one will presumably be asking us to choose between a particular deal or remaining. Very different. But it isn't the point. It shouldn't even be on the table, because any politician worth their salt should be running a mile from brexit and insisting that we remain in the EU in the country's best interests.

As the first one was deemed by the Courts - Illegal; but could not be Voided as it was supposed to be Non-binding and only Advisory....It seems the only real option should be another Referendum - one where you really know what is being voted for.....

I would prefer Gen. Election but would settle for second Referendum. There would be no point in a General Election if both parties still divided on Brexit, so clear Labour "Remain" and clear Tory "Leave" would settle issue once and for all. I am a Remainer and believe many (most?) leavers were misled and ignorant of the true cost of Leave. Now they have no excuse: let's see if they still vote the same. Those Labour MPs in Leave constituencies who are scared to com out as Remainers ought to be able to point their members to job losses already happening and loss of worker rights and protection if we leave Europe. Any racist "they're taking our jobs" anti-immigrant people have no place in a Labour party. Are we going to see redundant Nissan workers rushing to pick swedes in Lincolnshire or retrain to work in care homes and NHS? I doubt it.

Rant over.

There's no more talk from leavers about all those golden opportunities outside the EU and there's definitely no more NHS bus money, and Theresa May is far more undemocratic than the EU, so the only reasons left for voting leave are xenophobic and racist ones.

Of course the fact the vote was to leave the EU the first time around, and confirmed by a subsequent General Election and overwhelming vote for article 50, is considered meaningless by remainiacs.
Democracy is founded on a democratic vote strangely enough.
We are ruled by our elected representatives by consent.
Betray the democratic vote and trust is withdrawn.

Civil wars have been fought over less.

That is the situation we find ourselves in and no amount of parroting about this and that will alter the fact.

Should the democratic vote be overturned the next step in federalism will be full political union, totally centralised taxation, national legislatures rendered obsolete, AN EU defence force supplanting Nato and full on gallop towards a United States of Europe.
Whinge and witter as you will but that is the roadmap set out!
Also when the next depression strikes it is your bank accounts that will be raided.

Big Al Corbyn has major major problems with credibility. He has been anti EU since the year dot. His nearest and dearest in the party are hell bent on remaining. To keep them sweet he has to change tack and support remain. This quite clearly demonstrates he has no morality and will betray anything and anyone if he thinks it will serve him well. His party membership may be over the moon but the electorate in the heartlands will extract their revenge for his betrayal of them.
I do not expect to see him on the scene in a years time.
Come the next election there will be a reckoning unprecedented in british politics. This assumes hell does not break loose first. This is not a good place to be!

Dave gnome ,do some research

I have done extensive research, Dick. The EEC was a trade organisation. The EU is a trade organisation. Beyond that the EU had introduced its own currency and the Schengen Agreement, neither of which we subscribe to. In addition there are EU laws, which we assist in drafting and cross community cooperation on science and culture. So, basically, it is just the same as it was, with added benefits.

Now, you tell me how you think that the 2016 question was any different to the 1975 one.

gNOME, READ THIS CAREFULLY.The European Economic Community (EEC) was a regional organisation which aimed to bring about economic integration among its member states. It was created by the Treaty of Rome of 1957.[2] Upon the formation of the European Union (EU) in 1993, the EEC was incorporated and renamed as the European Community (EC). In 2009 the EC's institutions were absorbed into the EU's wider framework and the community ceased to exist.

The Community's initial aim was to bring about economic integration, including a common market and customs union, among its six founding members: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and West Germany. It gained a common set of institutions along with the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) and the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) as one of the European Communities under the 1965 Merger Treaty (Treaty of Brussels). In 1993, a complete single market was achieved, known as the internal market, which allowed for the free movement of goods, capital, services, and people within the EEC. In 1994, the internal market was formalised by the EEA agreement. This agreement also extended the internal market to include most of the member states of the European Free Trade Association, forming the European Economic Area covering 15 countries.

Upon the entry into force of the Maastricht Treaty in 1993, the EEC was renamed the European Community to reflect that it covered a wider range than economic policy. This was also when the three European Communities, including the EC, were collectively made to constitute the first of the three pillars of the European Union, which the treaty also founded. The EC existed in this form until it was abolished by the 2009 Treaty of Lisbon, which incorporated the EC's institutions into the EU's wider framework and provided that the EU would "replace and succeed the European Community".

The EEC was also known as the Common Market in the English-speaking countries and sometimes referred to as the European Community even before it was officially renamed as such in 1993.

Dick, I asked how you think it is different. You provided a stock cut and paste that summarised with the following phrase

Upon the entry into force of the Maastricht Treaty in 1993, the EEC was renamed the European Community to reflect that it covered a wider range than economic policy.

I state one again that of that 'wider range' we subscribe to neither the common currency nor the Schengen agreement. We do partake in the deciding which laws are enacted and in cross community scientific and cultural exchange. The main aim of the EU that we subscribe to is the same as the aim that the EEC had in 1975, I.E. integrated economic policy.

Now, once again, how you think it is different?

I have read it. It does not tell me what you think is the difference between the EEC and the EU other than 'it covers a wider range than economic policy'. What bits of that 'wider range' do you believe makes any difference to how the EU works with the UK now compared to how it did in 1975? We are not in the Euro zone. We are not part of the Schengen agreement. As far as I am concerned, there is nothing in that 'wider range' that significantly alters the UKs relationship with the EU. You think there is. What makes you think that?

The European Union Today

Today the EU is still dealing with many major issues (including the ongoing migration crisis and the upcoming Brexit). And, amid rising concerns with Brexit, the EU has reportedly begun considering creating an independent system to conduct financial transactions - that would exclude the United States, according to Newsweek.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas wrote in German paper Handelsblatt about concerns over the current state of financial affairs in the EU, especially in relation to the United States.

"Where the U.S. crosses red lines, we as Europeans must counterbalance," Maas wrote in an opinion piece. "It is, therefore, essential that we strengthen European autonomy by setting up payment channels independent of the USA, creating a European Monetary Fund and building an independent Swift system."

However, apart from EU-U.S. tensions, the union is caught in the middle of several other controversies.How Is the European Union Governed?

As mentioned earlier, the European Union is governed by three main bodies - the EU Council, the EU Parliament and the EU Commission.

The Council's main job is to create and propose new policies and legislation for the European Union; it operates under a different EU president every six months.

The Parliament then debates and passes the laws proposed by the Council, electing members once every five years.

Finally, the Commission enforces and operates the laws for the European Union - the current president of which is Jean-Claude Juncker (until 2019).

Additionally, the European Central Bank services the EU's financial needs and manages things like inflation rates and foreign exchange reserves.

Still, individual citizens allegedly have say in the democratically structured union. According to the official site, citizens have a variety of ways to contribute, including "by giving their views on EU policies during their development or suggest improvements to existing laws and policies. The European citizens' initiative empowers citizens to have a greater say on EU policies that affect their lives. Citizens can also submit complaints and inquiries concerning the application of EU law."

Yes, Dick. I know all that.

If the UK were in the EU we could vote against or even veto this proposal if we did not like it. Outside the EU we can do sweet FA about it.

The EU is different as we all know. You have failed to present any evidence that the UKs position in the EU is any different to what it was in 1975.

To be a little pedantic: there is no such thing as Corbyn's second referendum. There is a movement from a wide number of people and bodies with backing from some parts of the media, like "The Independent". To suggest it is Corbyn's is misleading.

If you mean you are interested in why he has decided to get behind the idea now, or what alternatives he wants to see on such a referendum, that is fair enough, but those things don't really distinguish him from any other supporter of the idea. And, based on the thread so far, those aspects don't seem to be what is being discussed.

By the Maastricht Treaty (formally known as the Treaty on European Union; 1991), which went into force on November 1, 1993, the European Economic Community was renamed the European Community and was embedded into the EU as the first of its three “pillars”

The Treaty of Maastricht (1992) created the European Union as a single body of "three pillars". The pillars consist of the:
1) European Communities(the EEC),
2) Common Foreign and Security Policy
2) Cooperation in Justice and Home affairs.

referendum one voted on one pillar
referendum 2 voted on three pillars

There is a significant difference between the content of the two referendums, and not just numerical.

I made my point about it not being Coebyn's referendum because there is something called 'framing' which can distort things substantially. There are people who would never vote for anything if it came from th3 Tories. There are also people who would never vote for anything if it came from Labour. So calling this 'Corbyn's referendum" will, intentionally or otherwise, amplify that distortion.

How will Labour go about getting a second referendum? There is talk of nodding through May's deal in exchange for the referendum. That is probably not acceptable to May, but if she did agree it would work.

Argy-bargy is, I am afraid, our fate for a decade or so more irrespective. If May's deal is accepted - well done, we have got the easy bit out of the way. Now come years of tough arguments about each and every deal. If we go to a referendum the arguments will continue unless one side or the other wins by a huge margin - at least 20% I would say. If remain win by 52-48 for example, most leavers who have said "We won, get over it" will suddenly think that is not a persuasive a4gument at all. If leave win, I suspect a lot more remainers will accept it, but it won't stop them pointing out every problem and blaming it on Brexit.

The 'Peoples Vote was described on last night's Question Time as a 'Rigged Referendum' because it gives Leavers no choice. Since the last referendum resulted in a vote to leave the only valid referendum to follow it would be a choice between leaving with May's deal or leaving on WTO rules. That would be a referendum I would support, as would most leave supporters. Of course the Remainers would not allow that to happen..

We are all prone to have too high an opinion of ourselves. That would be the only referendum you regard as valid. Which is a completely different thing from the only valid referendum.
