A Second Brexit Referendum?

Campaigners are mounting a legal challenge arguing that the law requires a second referendum before Brexit can go ahead because the 2011 “referendum lock” introduced by David Cameron applies to Brexit talks. The lock prevented any significant change to UK/EU relations without the public’s say. The campaigners argue it makes the negotiations illegal without a second referendum because the transitional period is likely to mean a big transfer of powers to Brussels.
