Ladbrokes have a market up on a second referendum to be held before July 2017 at odds of 10/1. My initial thought was no bet for me, but then I remembered Leave’s front man, Boris Johnson, has in the past talked about two referendums, “Johnson has told friends that a “no” vote is desirable because it would prompt Brussels to offer a much better deal, which the public could then support in a second referendum.”
Though Boris has u-turned on that idea a few months ago, I do wonder if we vote to Leave on Thursday, the winning side would ask the voters to endorse the new Brexit deal, if the deal doesn’t match the rhetoric of this campaign, especially when it comes to free movement.
However given the time frames involved to do a new deal, and the only thing that all Tories currently agree on as one minister told The Sunday Times is “Can we please have no more f****** referendums again. Ever.” the logistics and the politics make this no bet for me, though other punters might disagree with my assessment on this bet.
