Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What is the timeline that would result in an election before 31 October? That's only 11 weeks from now. Is there a magical company over there that can retroactively print ballots for a question that has not even been formulated yet?

The timeline for an election is described here. No need to formulate a question for that. Last time a referendum took several months months to organise even when the question was deceptively straightforward. The Brits really aren't very good at this sort of thing, which isn't even part of their "constitution" such as it is...

If they decide they need to organise BOTH an election and a referendum, a further A.50 extension of at least 6 months and probably until July would be required. And that is assuming there is a clear Parliamentary majority for whatever is proposed.
