Compromise proposal to extend Brexit deadline

The European Union should extend for six months the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline for Great Britain to officially leave the EU. This extension should be granted only if Great Britain agrees to hold a second vote within three months so its citizens can decide on whether or not they want to leave the European Union. Since the initial vote was taken three years ago, by now the people should know what they want — to leave or not to leave the EU. That is the question.

If the people vote to affirm the decision made three years ago to leave the EU, then the leaders of Britain and the EU will have a final three months to come up with the terms and conditions on how Britain will leave. However, if the British people vote to remain a full-fledged member of the EU, the problems surrounding Brexit disappear.
