Will there be another 'in-out' referendum on Brexit before 29th March 2019?

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, has consistently ruled out the possibility of another referendum on Brexit before the UK leaves the EU on the 29th of March 2019. However, with the process now mired in difficulty and with a Parliamentary vote on May's proposed deal with the EU now only days away - a vote most observers agree that she will lose - May's advisers are reported (…) to be urging her to consider the possibility of offering the public another referendum on Brexit.

This question shall resolve positively if before the 29th of March 2019 another referendum is held in the United Kingdom in which the public are asked to choose to either remain in the European Union or to leave the European Union, regardless of any terms appended to those options (e.g. to leave the European Union with no deal, or with May's deal, or to remain in the Euopean Union on new terms, et cetera).

A referendum on merely accepting or rejecting any proposed deal with the European Union, without regard to either remaining or leaving, will not suffice; membership of the Union itself must be on the ballot.


Metaculus help: Predicting

Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.

The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available.

The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.

Note: this question resolved before its original close time. All of your predictions came after the resolution, so you did not gain (or lose) any points for it.

Community Stats

Metaculus help: Community Stats

Use the community stats to get a better sense of the community consensus (or lack thereof) for this question. Sometimes people have wildly different ideas about the likely outcomes, and sometimes people are in close agreement. There are even times when the community seems very certain of uncertainty, like when everyone agrees that event is only 50% likely to happen.

When you make a prediction, check the community stats to see where you land. If your prediction is an outlier, might there be something you're overlooking that others have seen? Or do you have special insight that others are lacking? Either way, it might be a good idea to join the discussion in the comments.
