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

Article 50 specifies a narrow temporal corset of two years to regulate exit procedures and the new relationship with the EU.
Yes, this is true. On the one hand, there's no need to invoke A50 immediately after the referendum. e.g. if the UK government believes they need more prep time, they can prepare and invoke it at a later time. However, given that things take as much time as is available to do, then its probably no bad thing to invoke it immediately and focus minds.
