Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I consider the EU a pipe-dream which was brought into place to emulate or even compete with the mighty US and some Asian nations. This being said, apart from using the same currency which in reality only simplified the B2B and tourist transactions and the fact that one doesn't have to show his/her passport, whenever he/she may travel across EU borders, the entire concept is an utter failure. Along with the Netherlands, I consider the UK the strongest member of the union and I can see definite advantages, if the UK were to leave the EU. The UK can do well without being a member of the EU and still enjoy the few benefits of being a European country (facilitated trading agreements, proximity to the continent, etc.).
Seriously, why do people think this? If we walk off in a huff why on earth would we still get facilitated trading agreements etc? How many divorced people do you know that still share a costco card?
