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

When the new PM steps in, the question of Brexit would have been a foregone conclusion. There will be no more questions to Brexit or not. The discussions will be around firming up a clear and agreed upon exit strategy.

They should also kickoff as many trade deal negotiations with as many non-EU countries as they can now. The more they score these, the more leverage they have going through the process, and the calmer it will get.
Yes, I was wondering about this too. You could build up the negotiation capability and try to get as many done as possible before triggering a50. Of course, the problem is that any deals struck could only be implemented after the UK leaves the EU.

Plus you only have a 2 year window to get these other deals done (assuming you want to close the EU deal within the remaining 2 years of the parliamentary term).
