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."
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.
Actually, there is some degree of decoupling, and I agree it is not enough. But as I said, it is an interim step towards that direction.
