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

It's already happening: Austria joins Germany & France and calls for reform.
Nobody in France is calling for the reforms the UK dreamt of. It is totally unfrench to want to reduce the EU to nothing more than a single market for business and cash flow speculation.

To France and Germany, Europe is about politics. For the UK, it's just business. It was a miracle the UK got in in the first place, and a second miracle that it lasted so long. Germany wanted the UK in order to feel less lonely when talking balanced state budget and debt reduction, and France wanted a european army starting with unifying the british and the french one.

Both France and Germany got a clear NO from the UK from the people of the UK after getting it year after year from the politicians. I don't see how they can be sad for themselves, they are sad for Europe as a political entity. This concept is absent of the English language south of the Hadrian wall, Brexit is the most honest event in the EU since German reunification. Good or bad news is another question but it's honest. Thanks for that.
