But unlike Greece (who btw simply ignored their referendum), the UK will have no problem in sticking two fingers up and going their own way.
With 48% of it's exports bound for the EU, many people will find it anything but easy!

It's this sort of talk that is shows just how pig headed the EU is.
Well the UK could be flexible, after all they are the ones that want access to the market. The idea that they can have all the benefits without paying their dues is most definitely cause for the EU to say no.

Do they not see that no deal is also bad for them? They'll have a 10% budget hole to fill, all those companies that export to the UK to satisfy, all those EU citizens currently residing in UK whose futures need securing.
A basic mistake is of the UK is to assume while they stand up for their principles, everyone else can be bought.
