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

Oh, forgot the Scotts- who are very likely to break off if Brexit comes through.

You just can't compare the agreements Switzerland has managed to negotiate- to those (see art 50 please) that the UK may, or more likely may NOT, be able to secure after Brexit- and not for a very long time anyhow. Being massively dependent on power and water from Germany, France and Scotland may well bite the UK back on the proverbial. If they decide to hike prices - what other options would there be for the UK, but to bow and pay.
Maybe said Scottish and German companies are also reliant on the UK as a market to export to. Retaliation is not a one way street and although I do at times have little faith in our politicians, they are not going to be as stupid as the Remainers are tyring to tell us.

Anyway, the remainers are also threatening us by saying that a Brexit will massively hurt British industry, This would imply electricity demand will nosedive.

Or are they trying to have it both ways?
