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

Obviously not; if that was the case the EU would have given way on the FMOP point already.

So you believe that as soon as UK leaves the EU will forget about FMOP, come on!

There have been suggestions that UK should join EFTA but I doubt they would allow a new member to join without also joining the European Economic Area (EEA) which has pretty much the same clauses (like FMOP) that UK objects to.
Well, they have admitted being tough on CH in order not to create a precedent for the UK, so it is a will not rather than a can not problem. The question is how long Merkel can avoid a rebellion within her own government. Maybe her successor will be more magnanimous and less of an all or nothing type.
