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

"Why the need to negotiate the exit - if we vote out, we're out." I assume there are a lot contracts, deals, money payments which are in progress and next steps will need to be understood and agreed.

Look for example at the research program Horizon 2020 - - European Commission - here there are billions of euros in play....
When Switzerland voted on the FMOP thing the Erasmus program was terminated the very next day, almost, and the consequences of the rest of it have still not been worked out to this day.

It seems that in the EU some things kick in automatically when they want them to and some things get protracted and negotiated or even stonewalled when they want them to.

And then they accuse others of cherry picking.
