This time it will be obvious what the results of both choices will be . People won't be happy regardless of the vote but they will at least shut up and we can get on with running the country. I doubt the tabloid press would press hard either way

I'm not convinced. Between the EU and a shit sandwich of unknown providence the UK electorate still voted for the latter. What makes you think they'd actually choose something sensible if the options were clear?

Heck, you could probably have a referendum between remaining in it and detonating a 50 megaton nuclear device over the West Midlands and it'd still turn into a close run thing.
