Based on the current discussion, I'm wondering what you guys would think about a two stage election?  So, in other words, have three options in the first stage (1 remain and 2 leave), but if no option gets 50+1%, then a second election is triggered between the top two options.  This way, even if the first stage is biased towards remain by splitting the leave vote, as long as there's not a majority voting remain, the leavers will get a second chance in which there's only two clear options.



Isn't that basically just a preferential vote except you have to go twice?

Yeah, pretty much, but the argument upthread seemed to center on the number of options biasing the vote one way or another if they're all on one ballot, so thought that could be a solution.

2 separate votes?   I refer you to Brenda from Bristol
