Better late than never. This is what I had long been hoping for. I think Labor pushing for a second referendum is the only path to it happening.

Things are looking up. An extension seems like a formality.

To my mind, the most appropriate way forward is relatively long extension to allow a general election, with Labor laying out a clear manifesto for a second referendum, and specifying exactly what the referendum would look like; and the Conservative party laying out [something else]. This way, any change to the result of the first election has to pass two hurdles of democracy - a general election in which the question of a new referendum is a primary factor, and then (if Labor win) the referendum itself.
