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

May said "Brexit is Brexit" and aligned her cabinet accordingly, and Merkel already said it is a certainty. The UK is already elucidating what post-Brexit UK looks like.

Is there really still some denial? A glimmer of wishful thinking left?
Denial is to not invoke article 50 when one wants to leave the EU. That is denial of legality and procedures. Nothing one makes German friends with. There is a lot of wishful thinking in May's government: May wants, like Thatcher, reduce the EU to a trading place for the benefit of the UK with no second thought to anything else. This is not what is written in EU treaty and the UK doesn't care, that is a huge denial.

Re-joining EFTA is a matter of months. It is outlined on the EFTA charter. .
After being out of EU, yes. Nobody is contesting the "months" part, only when to start counting.
