Theresa May Offers MPs Vote On Second EU Referendum
Prime Minister Theresa May has promised MPs a vote on holding a second EU referendum in an attempt to get her Brexit deal to pass.
The vote would be included in the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which will come to the commons during the week commencing 3 June.
If MPs voted for a second referendum, the government would be legally-bound to offer one, meaning that, potentially, we could all be heading back to the ballot boxes to choose between remaining in the EU or taking the existing Brexit deal that the government has hammered out.
The vote would only be offered to MPs if they pass May's Brexit Bill - which as yet, they've refused to do.

Before saying that delivering a Brexit that kept everyone happy 'proved even harder than I anticipated'.
