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

View Post
All true.
If we take Switzerland as an example then we have seen the EU take rapid action against Switzerland even though there was just an internal Swiss referendum and no formal actions by the Swiss Govt..
Consequently there is a precedent that the EU will also act against UK soon!

There have been posts here about whether or not the EU will treat UK badly in future negotiations; we are looking at the wrong opponent.
Myself I believe the big risk for us comes from EU countries who are facing demands for their own exits and want to make that look as unattractive as possible.
CH did take formal action to not allow Croatians in as part of FMoP. The EU responded to that.

There is no treating good or bad. Nations have trade interests and back them up with the leverage and power they can muster.

The UK will find out how much leverage it has soon enough.
