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

In fairness they didn't organise the referendum or choose its wording.
That wouldn't have kept them from working out at least a concept of what's to follow, something to start off of. But they didn't, and as a result now everybody is contradicting each other, including government members. That's anything but leadership.

That would be largely because Eurosceptics have long followed the principle that the principle of sovereignty supersedes all other arguments - that is, even if it destroyed a nation, it would be worth it on principle.
Assuming they're not intending a "burn all bridges" strategy, preventing that destruction (if one considers it a realistic possibility) requires the same as above.

Funny thing is, that by continuously using microscopic detail you'll get there in the end. It reminds me of OJ Simpson really. The prosecution relentlessly pushed the point that you had to be certain he was guilty of every aspect in such infinite detail that in the end, they got the result they wanted, when its obvious he did it to the layman.
Let's say things remain as they are now and May invokes 50 in March '17, but EU rejects because they found it to be unconstitutional without explicit parliamentary bill. What would you say then, and what would be likely consequences?
