I think there should be a second referendum.
We voted to Leave in the first referendum. But that does not mean we agreed to Theresa May’s deal, nor does it mean we agreed to Leave with no deal at all. Of the options available, the public still needs to have a say on which one we take.
As an analogy: If you like the advert for a particular restaurant and decide to go in and eat there, it doesn’t mean the waiter now has full authority to dictate to you what you must eat. He is supposed to bring you a menu, and now you have the right to decide what to eat based on the available options. And indeed, you have the right to decide that, after seeing the menu, you don’t actually like any of the options and would rather not eat there after all.
For the government to force either Theresa May’s deal or a no deal Brexit upon us without our consent (either via a referendum or a general election at least) would be undemocratic. It would take the mandate granted by the first referendum too far, and out of context.

Yes. Even the most mentally challenged Brexiteer cannot deny that it can only help promote freedom and democracyTM.
This is provided that none of the options in the second referendum involve reneging on the idea of Brexit entirely (which would contradict the democratic willTM which was expressed two years ago).
Everyone knows young adults wanted to remain. So of course they would want another referendum (which will likely be remain by a large margin).
Despite being pro-Remain, I think another referendum is a bad idea. Brexit means brexit- let’s just leave.
