Theresa May has reportedly entered secret discussions over the possibility of staging a second Brexit referendum.

The Prime Minister was said to have carried out 'scenario planning' last week to prepare for a potential vote in Parliament on holding a second referendum.

According to the Telegraph, Mrs May and her aides discussed giving the electorate a three-way vote on whether to take Brexit with a deal, leave without a deal, or Remain.
If the majority of votes are for either, take Brexit with a deal, leave without a deal, neither option being acceptable to the Westminster shower, what would they do then, as they will be no further forward than they are today, however they would have definitely run out of options to kick the can down the road after that likely result.

I doubt they could get a referendum sorted in time to keep the UK from the necessity of holding the MEP elections, which I think the desperation from May to agree a deal with Labour in the forlorn hope they can get that passed by Westminster and the EU in time to stop the UK holding MEP elections, demonstrates that they want to avoid that further embarrassment for the political set.
