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

Ultimately, Brexit comes down to the sovereignty of the UK Courts. This has been the central rally point of Eurosceptism for decades, and it is the central linchpin of the issue. Contrary to how it is portrayed by losers today, the discussions of leaving the EU did not begin with introduction of that NHS campaign bus.

In the interim EFTA-EEA state, if the government finds it necessary, the UK will be able to stimulate areas of growth without EU intervention, and set taxes as they see fit. They can continue the program of decoupling from the EU. It does not need to happen overnight. It could take many years to unravel. But it is the process underway.
"Ultimately, Brexit comes down to the sovereignty of the UK Courts."
Joining EFTA does not solve that issue.
Leaving the EU does not reduce the power of the ECHR.

"In the interim EFTA-EEA state .................. the UK will be able to stimulate areas of growth without EU intervention"
EU member states (we'd still be an EU member state until the end of the post Art. 50 two-year process) must follow EU rules and laws.
