Answers:
1) What does the leader of the opposition (Labour) want to do, and how does it contrast with one of his party members?
He, Jeremy Corbyn, prefers to have a general election, after which they will be able to negotiate better with Europe, but the Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, says that the new referendum option is “on the table”.
2) Even if a new referendum were to be held, why might this still not result in remaining?
It might take too long to organise, and the official leaving date may come first.
3) What are the three possible situations of the Brexit issue?
Follow the Prime Minister’s exit deal, exit with no deal, or no exit.
