Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There isn't enough time for a referendum before the end of March.

But if I recall correctly, an election can be called with 25 working days' notice.

So if it were called, say, this evening, that would be just about enough time ... it could be held any time after 21 February. Which would give three whole weeks before the EU summit scheduled for 21 / 22 March, during which the winner (if any) would have to form a new government and pass whatever legislation is required to either :

  • submit to the May/Juncker exit agreement;
  • revoke Article 50 and stay in;
  • plead for an extension to organise a new referendum, and/or negotiate a whole new deal.
